Spam A Lot

Author: Lyle

Doing a little house cleaning here; the comment spam filter filled up to more than 700 entries (not sure the last time I checked).  I usually just roll through and delete them all, but then I saw one real comment and realized I should step through them.  Akismet does an awesome job catching junk, but they collect until you permanently delete them.  It would be nice to have an option or another plug-in that would delete out comments in foreign languages or non-American character sets.  I can’t read them, and they are a large percentage of the junk that gets submitted.
