Ideas no, suggestions yes.

Right now i do the following. Check for spam/stopwords and the plugin marks them as SPAM and DISABLES them. Then i use the Butler plugin to delete the spam automatically.

So it is important to think what to do if a spam/stopword is found. Mark as spam, disable the ad, or whatever.

This much sounds good to me Liath..  just that i'd make sure not to scan the entire DB, and scan only a particular user's listings to mark as spam/duplicate.

One problem i see is that prof spammers (paid from India, Pakistan, Philinines etc) are using more than one email to post the same post.

True, i've had one terrible case in which one guy just wouldn't give up. He was using a new email every time i blocked his previous one, and even when i blocked his IP, he was using proxies to access from new addresses.

I don't think such desperate cases can be automatically blocked. This probably can to be only dealt with manually.. luckily such cases are not very common

This simple trick also helps (.htaccess) and maybe give Liath some ideas for the plugin

Code: [Select]
# Protect from spam bots
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} POST
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .wp-comments-post\.php*
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !.yourwebsite.com.* [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^$
RewriteRule (.*) ^http://%{REMOTE_ADDR}/$ [R=301,L]
</IfModule>

Replace “yourwebsite.com” with your blog url. The code only blocks SPAM BOTS and not humans who manually try to spam. Bots are the most annoying pests so preventing them from spamming is a good first step.

Phew you're fast! The dashboard looks nice.. eagerly waiting to test.
Thanks Liath

IDEA - How about the duplication has two options : 1.) To check both title and description OR 2.) To check only the description
Also, if the number of characters that need to be tested can be inputted from the dashboard.
...not sure if you like this, but just suggesting
