I'm sorry for the trouble - that's certainly a lot of spam! It looks like you've already deleted the comments, so I don't have access to them to see what you were dealing with specifically.
However, I do have a couple general tips to help prevent this from happening in the future:
If a lot of the spam comments have a common string of text, I suggest adding that string to your blacklist:
(You can use the comment author's name, IP address, web site, as well as the comment itself. Please make sure the string of text is not something contained in non-spam comments. For example, if you enter "press" as a blacklisted word, "WordPress" will match.)
Also, please be sure to mark spam comments as spam instead of just deleting them. Our Akismet anti-spam engine tries to learn from spam comments so as to be able to detect them in the future.
