It is informative, in my personal opinion, and is one method useful
for combatting comment spam. Using htaccess to deny access is
something that is well written about, but how exactly a user would
think of using that to solve the spam problem without a cue from the
combatting comment  spam page is unclear to me?

Is it that great an eye-sore?

The information is not outdated, redundant, or misleading. Maybe we
can add a line that says that it is effective in stopping floods, and
may not be effective over a long period of time and leave it at that?
