    Sniff, sniff... sob!
    Actually, this is a much more robust version, well worthy of its 
1.0 number.  While it'll probably be necessary to have some sort of 
"hold if service is unavailable" option (since a determined spammer 
could DOS the service while doing a posting run in order to get 
through) that's something that could easily appear in a later version.
    I really like the "Spam (n)" tab; it makes checking for false 
positives a breeze.  Anything that lets me stay far, far away from 
phpMyAdmin is a blessing in my book.
