As a follow up to this I know there's a bit of a debate around Trac  
development itself regarding editing comments.  You can't currently  
delete these spam comments unless you do it via the database.

http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/ticket/454

But is it not possible to enable the permissions element that  
disallows anonymous editing of tickets? :

http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/ticket/1396

That was implemented in changeset 1516 for Trac

Just to be vindictive I also tracked down the host of those sites to  
see if they would shut it down ... we'll see.

Jayzuz this is very much OT, but I can't be the only one getting sick  
of it.
