One of the things that I did was change my template so that it does not have any default text that can be searched for. I have never had a spam problem on my blog. I installed wordpress on a site that was in DMOZ for a friend and within a day or two they had hundreds of spam comments. There are people out there that are spidering the web looking for wordpress installs. One thing you could do is change the default names of all the files. I would not do this unless you really understand php. The funny thing is blog spam is only done by very armature SEO's. The pros have moved on. People are just buying these scripts and pushing a button because they heard it helps. The truly great black hat SEO techniques are never public. If they make it to the forums it means they don't work any more.
