Comment Moderation Highlighter

Comment Moderation Highlighter is a WordPress plugin that will highlight keywords you specify on the admin moderation page, making it easier to spot manual spam and/or troll comments.

If your blog gets so many comments you tend to skim them during moderation, you can sometimes miss ‘manual spam’ or trollish comments. This plugin will highlight keywords you specify so certain remarks grab your attention for further review. It is useful for blogs that get numerous comments and the moderator tends to skim instead of reading each and every one.
