Spam Trigger Module

Is not working as intended. I fixed it and submitted the complete fix to Pligg Support and posted it also on https://github.com/redwinefireplace/pligg-cms/commit/f02a9c62861f91b44903cdaa8f5bba88e5069555

How it works:

Submit a Story or Comment

1- Upon submission of a story, the Module now checks for spam based on three levels: Light Trigger, Medium Trigger and Hard Trigger:

a- Light Trigger: the story will be held for moderation.

b- Medium Trigger: the story will be discarded.

c- Hard Trigger: the user will be 'Killspamed' and subsequently all his/her stories, comments, saved stories, etc. will be deleted.

NOTE: the Spam Trigger Module comes with the Light Trigger populated with common spam words and phrases. You have to populate the Medium and Hard Triggers. You can go through the Light Trigger and edit/remove according to your liking and even move some to the medium and Hard Triggers.

Be careful, some of the included words and phrases may be used innocently in a normal story.

Editing a Story or Comment

Say that a "smart" user/spammer submitted a normal story first and immediately edited the content, title and tags to include spam. It will be caught. Same procedure applies to Comments.

I already moved 4 entries from the Light trigger to the Medium Trigger for the purpose of this demonstration.

Is it possible to manual approve user? i want to block the user until user is manual approved by admin because i am getting to many spam registration. or can we just allow registration through facebook or twitter
Is it possible for users to report spam submissions or comments?
I had like 50 submission held on Akismet and I skimmed through it and selected all as spam!

Now I'm locked out of my own pligg site... how in the world can the admin be flagged as spam? isn't there some protection for that?

Most, importantly, how do I log back in as admin?

thanks
Please I need help urgently!
I was having a lot of spammers in my site so I installed askimet module with key, spam, human check, SFS antispam(which didn't work because I don't have their key), spam trigger modules to help me reduce spammers, they did but the error now is that any story that is submitted immediately goes to 'Discarded', even the ones I write personally. I'll have to manually go and change its status in the Admin panel manually before it can appear on the 'New' page or published (depending on my choice). This is very scary, because I have others posting and checking each post with a lot of spams involved is kind of difficult and time consuming. I've uninstalled all the modules I listed above, but still the same result.
Please I need urgent help.
THANKS!!
Hi,
I had the human check and Captcha: Solve Media set on my website:
http://www.t20fan.com/
but still the spammer(s) broke into the site and have posted more than 90 New posts before I changed the Captcha to another one "Whitehat" then it stopped for a while and unfortunately the spammer(s) were able to break all of the Captcha options. Is there anything anyone would suggest to better counter such things happening again?
Thanks!

Hi,
From AdminPanel>Users and select filter as spammer and when i selected all and pressed the kill spam button and it shows the same users again they are not getting deleted from database.
What should i do,please try this your self before confirming its working.
A confirmation dialogue says "Are you sure you want to killspam these users" and when i press ok,nothing happens
