    I have version 1.2.1, and what I'm interesting in trying to find out is if there's any possible way of blocking comments that meet criteria spam words list. Reason being is, while yes it's nice to still force those into a holding queue, it starts to become quite tiresome to have to delete 20-30 comments a day created by a auto-commenting bot...
    Is there a plugin or a hack to change this? I've been searching the forums and wiki to see if there is but I haven't ran into anything yet...

  2. Jason, the link above is the complete list of working spam blocking techniques. If you want to find discussions here about spam, do a search for "comment spam" and carry on in one of those threads, there are plenty.
    As for automatically deleting spams that are awaiting approval, I just let them sit there until Saturday or Sunday and then do a mass-delete. The most important thing about spam control is to not let yourself be bothered or inconvenienced by it.
