Comments Fixed

It appears that someone checked "Harvest information from comments for blacklist" while cleaning up comment spam with the WP blacklist plugin. Unfortunately, this seems to frequently cause blank regular expressions to end up in the blacklist, which will match *all* comments. *sigh*

I fixed by clearing out the whole blacklist and reimporting it. I've also added the sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org RBL which seems to catch a lot of comment spam, because it lists compromised machines being remote controlled by the spammers.
