Just thinking out loud - wonder if threads or posts could be put into moderation automatically if they meet certain criteria, eg
  • Has posted less than 10 times & post contains: a link
  • Has posted less than 10 times & post contains: an IMG
  • Has posted less than 10 times & post contains: "viagra"
  • Has posted less than 10 times & post contains: "viagra" & is not a member of group: members with 100 posts

Or flag silently?

Think this would be great for spammers, trouble makers and for anything else we want to oversee - such as links to sites that contain keywords (that suggest they may be a competing site).

Get an Akismet key and let Akismet do the checking on the first 10 posts. They catch almost all of the spam and you needn't hassle with the finer details of defining spam.

It's not actually just for spam Mike. Sometimes it would be handy to get flagged about certain posts. Just for example, those that contain 'flickr' in them - you may have noticed that flickr now forces spam links when people post an image hosted on it, 3 with each image! (We ask users to just include one link with the photo). Other examples are mentions of forums that might be competition. I can see lots of handy uses for it.

Just to clarify, I meant groups (usergroups) and just used a group with 100+ posts as an example. This is because we might want to ignore trusted usergroups (such as subscribing members or mods).

However I am fairly happy with the spam cleaner as it is for now (great that it's there!) - there are probably more important features to add before this one.
