checking for spam comments function

with this function, you can scan through your incoming comments and check them for keywords

the function will scan through the comment text and then provide you with a score

as you get more spam comments, you can use them to make the function work better for you by adding the additional keywords that can trigger it

if you wanted to have a ton of keywords you can add them to a db table or just a massive global array


/* if the spam score is >=4 its probably spam... */
function spam_score($text){
    $spam_score_val = 0;  
    $text = strtolower($text); // lowercase it to speed up the loop
    $spam_words = array("http","peni","pills","sale","cheapest"); 
    foreach($spam_words as $word){
        $count = substr_count($text, $word);
        $spam_score_val += 2 * $count;
    return $spam_score_val;

Treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time...and remember that time waits for no one.
