The best method might be to:

1) Reset the editorial mode of your sites to prevent new members from automatically joining a site. And require people to be a member of the site to post comments.

2) Requiring that editors approve anyone requesting membership.

3) We'll look at adding an interface to mass remove messages. Did you have something specific in mind? We could send you a script that can go through all messages for each site to remove messages based on a keyword. That might be a good step once you lock down access to the sites.

There are some sample spam filters here, but they would require you to update the keywords etc:

While it requires users register for a key, there's also the ManilaAkismet plugin:

But if you restrict access to post coments and enable the membership validation, you probably won't have to setup these filters/plugins.


This is a Manila site...
