How to Handle Spam Comments on Worpress

I have a lot of clients on Wordpress sites. What is the best free way to handle spam comments. All my clients get these bogus comments from spammers. They say things like "Wow, that post was really useful!" and then they have links to their various spam sites.

another option is the wp-recaptcha plugin. Basically it adds re-captcha to the form that users comment via.

I have used the plugin a number of times including my own blog and it has stopped 99% of the spam comments that I had been getting.
