Unsatisfactory detection of spam postings (Technics)

I would expect to spot the message as spam automatically when sending it because of the similarity to the known spam messages and not, that a moderator/admin has to mark it every single annoying time again as spam.

If services like Stop Forum Spam, Akismet or Bad behavior don't classify the message as spam, it will not marked as spam. The option report (and delete) spam sends the message to one of the services (and delete the message). These spam-messages are some kind of training data but we have no influence of the decision of new postings and, thus, spam is not marked automatically.

No one is bound to create accounts and/or keys of these services.

To use Akismet, you need a key; Stop Forum Spam is limited to the number of requests; ...

Does anyone of you maintain a badword and/or IP filter list?


Is there anything we can do (not only for this forum)? Anything, that's simple to use. Anything, that we can put in more than only the admins hands.

Enable the list for moderators, too. ;-)
