Akismet: Save postings classified as spam? (Technics)

Hi,

so far, postings classified as spam by Akismet are not saved (only an error message is displayed). Would it be better to save these postings anyway (flagged as spam and not displayed on the overview page)? This way you would have the possibility to find false positives. If nothing is done these postings could be deleted automatically after a certain period of time.

...OK, you have both possibilities now. One disadvantage of saving the spam is: if the admins/moderators do not check the spam regularly a "false positive" just disappears and the author can't do anything against it. If he gets an error message he can still modify the posting in order to be saved (e.g. remove suspicious links).
