Stopping comment spam by working together

According to Slashdot, Google, MSN Search, MSN Spaces, Yahoo!, Six Apart, LiveJournal, Flickr, Blogger, and many others are trying to stop comment spam in blogs by all agreeing to use a special attribute in links.

I hope that BlogSphere adds the new attribute soon.
