Filtering abusive comments

Is there a way to prevent abusive comments or words even before they reach the moderator/admin for approval? I noticed a stopwords.txt document but didn't quite know if that was used anywhere. Please let me know if this is possible.

Sounds like a great extension to make :-)

Awesome, I think I am going to take up that task, and also incorporate the CAPTCHA with it....i will keep you guys posted.

I think I'd make the captcha separate. As many people don't like them. Plus BE has some built in functionality to stop bots... so there isn't much of a need for a captcha.

Keep us updated on this... this is a pretty easy extension, and if you take to long I may jump ahead and do it :-) But I have another extension I am going to work on first.... so you have time :-)

A stop word list for comments is not a bad idea at all. BE already has an invisible CAPTCHA that blocks all bots.
