 The site "" seems to have a feed which automatically posts
 links to all of our content and creates a "ping" comment for each. They're
 not actually commenting or adding any value. I don't want to fill up the
 actual comments with these pings (they are really just noise!), and I also
 don't want to have to reject them manually.

 I guess that I could mark them as spam -- from google, the site looks like
 it was legit in the past but may have been taken over by someone, because
 I can't get legit content to load now and everything looks old.

 In any case, I just want to block it. How can this be done?
