I'm sure you've tried this but ... settings > discussion > Automatically
close comments on articles older than 0 days?
are all these comments coming in on attachments/images? Since you can't
disable comments on attachment pages maybe edit the images theme file and
remove the comments form.

But I'm sure someone has a better idea.
