I'm currently having the same problem that you are with spammers. Have a look at these users to see what I mean:

They typically just register an account with a website that has porn, sells drugs, etc, but occasionally actually post. It would be good if there was a word filter that works similar to the email and ip filter. It would also be good if there was a way for moderators to look at what is caught by the word filter and approve things that are legitimate. It would also be good if you can set a threshold that disabled the spamfilter on a per-user basis, such as after so many posts. Are there any plans for something like this?

There are no such plans at this time.

You could require admin approval for new accounts.
