Common Spam Words -> Auto-Refuse (3 posts)

    I modified WP slightly to add a new option, in the area of the Common Spamwords... basically to set whether or not to always refuse posts that contact any of the Common spam words set.
    I wrote this because I found myself spammer with poker posts (as we all have, I'm sure), and wished those would just get ignored, rather than moderated.
    Would anyone else find this useful? Is there already some hack that does this? Perhaps it's already a feature, and I missed it?
    If it's useful to others, I'll be happy to put together patches/instructions...

    You could compare what you are doing with what's there ?
    If it works in a similar, but not identical way it could be useful as it provides yet another hurdle for the spammers.

    Ah, that's a great page... but it didn't really have what I was looking for, or what I had written.
    I wound up re-writing the hack today as an actual plugin, and announced, here:

    How does a person get their plugin listed on the wiki plugin page?
    Thanks for your help!
