Attack of the blog spammers

Spammers have recently discovered our blog and have been slamming us. I've tried a few things, but after having to ban three of them this morning I've gone with our Nuclear Option.
I created a new user group "Members" and people with >10 posts will automatically be promoted to it. It should be identical to the old "Registered Users" group that everyone was in before. Main difference with Registered Users (those just signed on) now is that I've removed all permissions to post to the blog.
Let me know if any features seem missing from the new Members usergroup.
