Plug-in to use with Akismet to delete spam based on keywords (1 post)

    Help, it seems like this should be easy but it's not. I'm not a coder or a programmer.

    I use Akismet to block spam and it works fine, but I have to sort through dozens of comments every day and manually delete most of the spam. What I really need is an option in Akismet or another plug-in that will work with Akismet to delete spam before I even see it, based on keywords.

    99% of my spam has one of three or four keywords in it, and I'd like to be able to set a filter and say, "If a comment has ***** word in it, delete it right away." Yes, it's being caught as spam but I want it automatically deleted.

    Am I missing an option in Akismet? I've put words in the Blacklist but it doesn't help. Thanks!
