Comment(by miqrogroove):

 > I don't think its use correlates well with being spam.

 This thread isn't about spam sir ;)  It's about moderating comments that
 have links in them.  The existing feature, as advertised, is supposed to
 hold comments that contain N links in them, and IMO it does not do that.
 You could certainly argue that this should be a separate option and/or
 filterable, but the existing feature still wont do what it says it does.

 > so really preg_match_all could just count instances of <a href=

 I'm still trying to figure out how/why Denis's example link gets
 normalized.  The flow of control in there is incredibly hairy.
