Comment spam continues to increase

Is it just me or has comment spam increased recently, worse of all they are starting to read like read comments. I am actually getting comments which does not contain any links within the comment area and says things such as “I agree” or “Nice” or “cool”. Its as though they actually read my blog post!

Akismet spam protection for wordpress is starting to lose its effect on comment spam filtering recently. I actually have to go through pages of spam now to weed out the real comments (which are not alot) from viagra spam. Any idea how I can rectify this problem without disabling comments?
