Well, I guess that your script that became my script(s) were popular  
and successful.  I've moved on one wiki to a much SMALLER blocklist  
(mainly IP ranges that are unlikely to post anything but spam to my  
site and "the top words & phrases most likely to be spam posts") +  
limiting new links to 5.  It seems to be working so far, and pages  
save much faster.  I have a couple years worth of attempted spam  
logged, so I've gotten to periodically look at what posts were  
blocked by the skin of their teeth (Score = 1) and all of those were  
invariably caught by mentioning the name of a popular male- 
enhancement med.  So when I trimmed the list, that's one that  
definitely stayed on.

I got exceptionally frustrated with drug names that are parts of  
normally occurring words and don't want to actually USE my regex  
feature :)  Soon I'll adopt that method across my open-edit sites.

Are you going to just remodel my code which is a remodel of your  
code, or are you re-writing it from scratch?
