Spam protection considered harmful?

I wanted to read some blog entry today I got a lot of 403 errors. I thought this is strange that bloggers deny access to their readers. So I wanted to blog about this.

So I wanted to access my own blog but got a lot of 403 errors again. After some digging into the issue I found out that I had the BadBehavior plugin for WordPress enabled and my IP was listed in three different RBLs. I really wonder how it got into them all.

What do others do about this? Disabling comments or just live with this? Or use a different way to fight against spam in your blogs?
