    I definitely think that should be an option.  I know, I've said so 
before, but this is a perfect example of why I think so.  It would be 
even better if, upon the service returning, ASS could run through all 
the quarantined comments automatically.
    The other thing I'd really like to see is a "mark checked comments 
as spam" button on the mass-edit page.  When a run of comments sneaks 
past ASS, as has happened to some here (and me), it's a real pain to 
go through and mark each one individually.  I was lucky: I only had 
23 or so.
