I have the same thing, and Bad Behavior too. But there's still a handful 
getting through anyway. Sometimes 3 to 4 a day, some days it's just one 
or two. I know it's crazy, but every time I get them, I ban them. I have 
a text file with TONS of spammer IPs in it that I gotta go through and 
manually ban then as well. It will take forever, it might be pointless, 
but it's something I want to do.. :P Same goes for those proxy IP 
addresses... I have proxy and spammer IPs listed here. Those are the 
current proxy IPs I banned... Anyway, I'm going way off topic now. Sorry.
