The Deny Access section of the Combatting Comment Spam document deals 
largely with blocking IP addresses.  Time and time again this has been 
proven as practically useless beyond the stretch of a week.  Don't get 
me wrong, blocking IPs is great for breaking up floods, but the spam 
bots come back with a new IP in a week at most.  Origninally, this 
section came from Podz' combatting comment spam page, but hould this 
section remain?  Also, it deals primarily with .htaccess techniques 
found by searching Google.  Does it even belong in the Codex?  Another 
thing to consider is confusion for new users.  We don't want anyone to 
think that blocking spam with WordPress is difficult.
