Nowadays, there is a big wave of questions from black-magic spammers. What if there could be an option like auto-delete user or prevent-spammer as he tries to post phrases like "black-magic, +91 (number), love, marriage", etc. (and a few more can be gathered) in his spam. I know that mods delete such user accounts at the instant when they see. But, is there any other way to prevent them from posting or gather a few more phrases because, mods are not around sometime.

I also know that it takes a bunch of algorithm add-ups to the engine's clockwork. But, the cloud of spam has surrounded SE (I don't know about other sites) and there are atleast 5 spams per day flooding the active list (in the front page). I don't think this would be good in MSO

There already is a feature like this, known as blacklisting (not available to mods). SE has been notified, they're trying to deal with it.

    $\begingroup$ Ahh... I get it. BTW, I didn't know that mods have something like status-planned. Cool ;-) $\endgroup$ – Waffle's Crazy Peanut May 9 '13 at 9:56
