The correct URL is now:

If you're using BE, in response to this automated tool that leaves comment spam, you might want to make a simple modification to your CommentView.ascx.cs file in the User Controls folder.  In the Page_Load section in that file, you can try adding these 4 lines of code:

string generatedFieldName = "txtName" + DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString();
txtName.ID = generatedFieldName;
CustomValidator1.ControlToValidate = generatedFieldName;
RequiredFieldValidator1.ControlToValidate = generatedFieldName;

This code would be placed in the very beginning of the Page_Load section.  You can see this code in context in the CommentView.ascx.cs file we checked in here.

Another helpful solution to control spam is Commentor.
