[wp-hackers] Akismet going spastic

Recently (read as: last few months), I've been getting about 10 or so spam
comments per a day that all have "[BLOCKED BY STBV]" as the first part of
the name. I keep marking them as spam, but they keeping getting put in my
moderation queue.

It's getting to the point where I'm about ready to code up a plugin to
automatically reject and submit as spam any comment that contains that

Anybody else having a similar issue?
