I had teh same problem thus I decided to replace commentbox with 
commentboxplus together with following setting in config.php:
    	$EnableAccessCode = true;

This required to enter a code number when posting. maybe this will not 
prevent all spam, but definitely help. Additionally you can use the 
script blocklist2

This is what I do, even if I still haven't found out how to obtain the 
IP-numbers of the posters (to block them with blocklist2).

Maybe a markup for the remote IP-adress could be created. Any hints?
