Comment spam from China

I just got hit with the same comment spam at both macmegasite and worldbeatplanet. Two spams were posted at each site, with a subject something like ‘sdsf’ and the content consisting entirely of Chinese characters. All of the ones I saw today came from the IP address 218.17.119.154. Last week I saw exactly the same spam, which came from IP address 218.18.14.120.

Both of those belong to China Telecom. To avoid any future spam, I’ve blocked their entire IP address range from 218.13.0.0.0 through 218.18.255.255. I’ve never seen a legitimate user at either site from there, only spammers.
