We've been hit by some fairly sophisticated spammers who are targeting our site with on-topic posts... then they go back and edit their messages about a month later to insert spam links.

Hi, it seems our RSS feed contains threads which have been identified as spam and therefore are in a 'moderated' status.
Is this normal and what's the best way to stop these moderated threads from being included?

The ability to scan new messages for spam phrases has been helpful. Spammers nearly always post links in the message body, so using "http" as a filter helps to trap them before the message appears in public. (We send ours to the moderation queue.)
