    Behind the scenes on my forum I have had coded a plug in that we call Flame Watch.

    Its searches the forum every 2o mins or so. it generates reports (posts) in a hidden sub-forum for moderators eyes only, of instances of "fighting" words.

    Like

    ****er
    Idiot
    moron

    Moderators tune into that and hunt down and instantly infract people guilty of insulting other members..

    Its working very well

    Searching every 20 minutes seems like a poor way to do this. Instead, try hooking into the post creation/edit process to search for "fighting words".

    I didn't code it - so my terminology might be incorrect. Quite possibly the coder organized it the way you mention. its a busy forum across 3 servers and a load balancer and there is no slow down since we added it and it DOES help us catch a lot of the BADDIES. :D
