Recently my site was hit by 5682 spam comments and 42520 spam blog posts while I was away and had not checked my site for a week. I'm still not clear how to delete all of this cleanly, but that is not the issue here. What is needed to prevent this type of problem is a configurable limit on messages, comments, and blog posts per day plus admin notifications when those limits are reached and by whom.
This should be as simple as adding the variables plus user counters.
