Auto-block IPs with more than X spam comments.

    Right now marking a comment as spam doesn't do anything other than hide it. All that spam comment data is saved, and there is already a blacklist feature, so it would be easy to implement an option to automatically add an IP to the blacklist when it posts more than X number of comments marked as spam.

    I already wrote a plugin (WP-Blacklister) which sorts the spam comment data by worst offenders if people want this feature now, but I think it's something that should be added to the default version. Lots of us have thousands of spam comments just sitting in our databases, might as well use that information.

    Actually if you have Akismet installed, Marking a post as spam sends a message BACK to the servers to teach it what spam is.

    Use Akismet, mark as spam, it already does that :)
