you're better off just adding a random character to the end of every sentence claimed to be spam.
Why does the spam bot see ‘Please don’t advertise.' as spam? I understand that you can just close the comments, but what if you just wanted feedback, and a bunch of people start advertising? I remember a Scratch Team member saying that there are places where you can advertise.
It's not because that certain phrase is spam- say anything so many times and it'll be considered ‘spam’ by the bad word detector.

That is a valid point, but are RNTAS (random numbers to avoid spam) allowed?
