NP_CommentCensor - too rigid

Postby snailbrain » Fri Dec 27, 2013 9:59 am

Dear all,

I hope you had a peaceful and delightful Christmas and can enjoy some holidays.

When I encountered lots of spam about three months ago, I installed (among other measures) NP_CommentCensor and added more and more stop words as they appeared in spam comments. So far, so good.

Now I found out that CommentCensor does not only ban comments containing the words in question, but also any comments which contain the characters in other words.
Example: I banned "ugg" because I do not want spam links pointing to sellers. But words like "suggest" are now also banned because they contain "ugg".

Leaving blanks in the ban list does not work. Do you have any, well, suggestions? (No pun intended, really.)

Best regards,
Snailbrain
