 The site hasn't been "hacked" - keeping spam at bay is an ongoing fight.  Every weekday Tonya goes through and looks at all the message board posts, replies, and blog comments on the site and deletes anything questionable.  We add things to our filter, but as long as someone is willing to pay an actual person to sit and copy and paste this junk into our comments, there's nothing we can do but delete and force them to get more creative in their spellings.  We're working on it right now, and it should all be gone in the next hour or so.

Glad to see you are on top of these things as I have the same problem with my Blogs. All you can do is delete them and hope that they will eventually give up.
