    Obviously, it would be ideal to not allow the spam posts in the first place, but running a
    DELETE a few times per hour isn't going to cause a bunch of I/O like you are insinuating.At the
    end of the da...

    Keep up the great work Austin !! The ones who are typing chinese, cant that be blocked by not
    accepting the language? ( I know nothing about this so may be stupid question)Who has been
    typing Chinese?...

    How would that result in hitting the database more? You run a single DELETE statement to delete
    the posts that get flagged. You can run the analysis code when it first gets posted, even. Or

    useful like "...

    Maybe instead of validating it as it's posted, run a "cleanup" job every few minutes to delete
    posts that are obviously spam.Hit the database three times instead of once while running the
    same analysi...

    Manual approval is not the panacea you seem to think it is. If there are a bunch of humans
    sitting around creating the membership requests, then they will easily get by the "admin
    intervention require...

    Here's an idea: automatically block any posts with Chinese characters.Good idea, but not so
    simple in practice.Basically, you need code to analyze the unicode byte range of every single
    character in a...
