    Spammer Tar Pit Plugin
    If you have any IP numbers listed in your moderation_keys setting (that’s where you put the spam words in the Comment Moderation setting under Discussion Options), this plugin will check them against the current visitor’s IP number. If it matches, the visitor will get a delay (that’s the tar pit – it slows them down), then an “Access Denied� message. You can customize the delay time and the message of course. Advanced users can also add additional IP matches manually, should they so desire. You might want to do that in order to match against an entire IP block, for instance.
    This works great in conjunction with Kitten’s Spam Words Plugin. Anytime you “Delete comment as spam", the offender’s IP number will automatically be added to your moderation_keys.

    This is cool, Dougal! Can you add the ability to kick the spammers in the cajones as well? :)
    Also, does this remind you of anything: "avast, matey"? ;)
