Exactly what I was looking for! No more polluting of my WordPress database with obviously spammy comments!

I will never, ever want to even moderate comments containing the "viagra" or "pharmacy" words. This plugin reduces the number of spam comments in the database and therefore makes it much easier to identify false-positives.

It took me only a short while to fill the Block List with keywords taken from real comment spam. I treat it as a pre-filter for Akismet also because I want to take off the load from my server.

And even if a real commenter gets caught in this filter, they will be notified why. The Blocklist used together with the default Blacklist is a powerful tool.

THANK YOU for this plugin!
