I gave Three Strikes a go, and it was preventing my friends from leaving
comments.  They did not enjoy the FBI (or was it CIA) site that much. :-)

Since I get very few comments anyway, I've been using auto-close since.
If I don't - sure enough - spam starts coming in.

It sounds like I should give Spam Karma a try, though.  It would be nice
if I could leave comments open even on the old posts.
