Deleted comment selections

I had to delete my Guest book. People using it to leave adds.  When I deleted my Guest Book people started leaving adds in comments page of my blog page.  I got many from Jamesgow over a dozen, some in other languages, some trying to sell sex pills, payday loan stuff etc.  I had over 50 adds in past 2 months alone.  Sorry people were trying to ruin my webpage.
