this issue still exists by the way. I have never been able to post any comment to an anandtech article
There's no need for automated spam filters, when there's already the registration requirement. Just manually approve the first message (or two) for every new user and that should weed out 99% of spammers and won't take more than 5 minutes per day (it doesn't have to be instant, either).^ But manual approvals means that someone has to be notified and act, every time something is blocked as spam, including the (probable) majority which are really spam.
