less annoying commenting system

i've taken 10 minutes of my time to write a patch for drupal's commenting system to allow me to throttle user comments by host name and time. so if the same host posts two comments with not enough time in between them, it'll quarantine their comments. so those people who just post one comment should be ok, this should reduce the amount of spam for now.

i'll probably have to install the spam module again and actually filter out per hosts and even per content. most spam comments have around 100 links or so. i wonder if there is a module to filter out regex's from my referrers list as well.

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
