Need tips to avoid the hassle of spam comments and users when enabling comments on WordPress

I want to re-nable comments on my Wordpress website. I used to have them enabled, but I turned them off because of the hassle of dealing with spammy comments and users. This time around I plan to use Akismet to keep comment spam to a minimum.

There are many other settings in the “Discussion” settings of WordPress that I am not sure about. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or other resource for guidance in making my website comment friendly without opening myself up to comment or user spammers? Any ideas about a resource or direct tips will be welcome.
