I can see what you're saying here. But, how ELSE is the plugin supposed 
to function in order to do it's purpose? Unless it goes through IP 
checks... or what not? You're basically saying, the plugin should be 
void / deleted to prevent spam right? But at same time... the whole 
plugins wonderful function is to notify legit members / subscribers of 
NEW comments to what they commented on... So! We're back at base camp 
again, where I said earlier.. it's just best to get rid of comment 
functions, user registrations, and emails... because spam ruins it 
all...? Right?
