    Comment moderation is on... is there a way to say a "Thanks for leaving your comment, it is currently awaiting moderation and will be displayed once approved" sortathing after someone leaves a comment, so they will know it went through and not try to leave it again and again, since they were dumb and didn't read the notice about comments being moderated?

    Touch wood but if you use the WP list of words and set the url limit low comment spamming should not be an issue for you Just an idea. :).

    Well I am not moderating due to spam, but because the site will have a bit of a controversial subject and I don't want those of the opposite persuasion to be able to leave rude comments. But yeah, maybe I will see how it goes first, then moderate if necessary later...

    The question is still a good one, though -- i've had some regular comments end up in the bin for using words in the list that also turn up in spam.
    Is there a way to put a message up if a comment goes to moderation, and another one if it posts properly?

    Probably, but I haven't found it yet. But I have had users submit their comments multiple times because my site was eating them. For now, I've just added the Comment Preview hack; which I'm hoping will cut down on that problem somewhat.

    Oriecat has a valid request which I second as I'm moderating as some of my older posts are now coming under spam fire and I like to moderate and keep it under control. Except now my friends are thinking that the comments aren't being posted because they don't show up instantaneously, so I get 2 or 5 copies of the same comment to deal with.
    I was about to hack through the code and see what to do about it but I wanted to know if it was a known issue/someone else had already done it and poked in here. So I guess I'll fiddle.
