Kitten has released version 2.0 of her Spam Words Plugin: After the recent comment and pingback flood that I had overnight, I think this is going to be the solution. As usual, Kitten has done a great job with this upgrade to her original spam words plugin. Here are some of the details of the upgrade:
# User approval and editing of the items being added to the spam list before theyâ€™re added.
# The â€œDelete Comments as Spamâ€ button is now inserted via the DOM, and no longer requires editing of core files.
# Backwards compatible with version 1.1. So if youâ€™ve already edited edit-comments.php you can install version 2.0 and it wonâ€™t break your page.
# Complete documentation.
# GPG signed code to ensure that it hasnâ€™t been tampered with.
This is pretty slick(pending implementation), Thanks Kitten!!
