How about the Spam button on Comments?

I received a comment spam. Since I always activate a comment moderation, this was fortunately prevented from publishing.

I wonder if there should be a "Mark as spam" button next to "Delete?" Maybe it would allow to block such spammers in the future?

Oh, if anybody is interested, the comment (of course, I deleted the link) was:

---

Get businesses on the first page of search
engines and earn a living out of it
act now or loose out on this deal
recommend this to your friends and family too

---

Hey Doc,

admin gets notified of all deleted comments. If it's spam from a member, we delete the account. If it comes from outside, we watch for patterns and then, if appropriate, block certain IPs.

I am going to delete some comments from an author (Jerrico), but it is not spam.

We have collaborated on an article which includes the comments, and to prevent duplication I shall be removing the originals.

PLEASE DO NOT DELETE HIS ACCOUNT.

The poor boy couldn't stand another account ban!!!!!!!!

But it could spawn another article ;)

Chaz - not all deleted comments are spam. Some people may have left duplicate comments by mistake, and the page author has then deleted one of them. Other times, newbies try to keep their dashboards *clean* without realizing that this affects their on-page comments as well.

In other words, we don't delete accounts because of deleted comments. We always investigate first, if there's a pattern of sorts. Moreover, we always see the text of those deleted comments in our admin mail notifications, and spam comments are of course easy to recognize.

HAHA thanks Chaz, that was great "The poor boy couldn't stand another account ban!!!"- your right, I'd likely lose it more from here than HP because this place now has my heart- where hp only has my attention :)

nice looking out for me... we got one another's backs here- nice to see.

Now back to my movie (hunger games, I don't know how it got on my computer...hehe)
