in thread Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam!

One risk of keywords is that some of the legitimate software out there will hit one of them, e.g., blender (http:://, or that somebody will ask a question about cheap IDEs for Perl. Of course, we're all programmers here, so we may be able to come up with a better method. All we have to do is give NodeReaper more power. Maybe so he (she?) can reap spammers, not just their spam....

    Its not really a risk

    AFAIKIIRC, stopwords are already used here at perlmonks (or maybe its stopurls), in any case, all stopwords do (or should) is increase the $spamcount++

    once a threshhold is reached, post is rejected
