Do you have any other recommendations?

If nofollow links ignore them.
I would attempt to look for copyright infringement issues in posts. Filling DMCA claims will get them banned from that domain which is the best outcome.

I wouldn't even bother trying to contact webmasters would just be a waste of man hours. Develop the crawler and sell it to some of your clients. Even if Negative Seo is not possible (i've seen so many case studies which show it is, but apparently if anything comes off bhw, wickedfire, traffic planet etc etc its fake/untrustworthy and i am a noob) you'll have businesses crapping their pants and wanting your tool/service from whats happened to the serps in the last couple of months.

For starters why should Dejan waste man hours and money trying to hunt down most likely abandoned blogs from all four corners of the world and try and file dmca's etc?
Secondly lets say some of these comments are hosted on servers located in some countries where brown paper bag is more powerful than a DMCA ?
Thirdly a dmca is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Millennium_Copyright_Act. "It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services"
Im no lawyer but since when does linking to someone somehow infringe on the act?
Cue me whinging about why google should just devalue or let the webmasters choose which links they want to approve.
