Require a valid URL (if provided) for comments

Seems most of the comment spam I get these days uses what looks like an email address in the URL field, then includes their junk as URLs in the comment body. So I thought to myself "if b2evolution didn't accept a comment that had an @ in the URL field I wouldn't be seeing most of this crap" even though I know they'd adapt. Again.

Bummer. Another great idea dashed to pieces on the rocky shore of reality :(

Just got another one. Never mind the @ in the URL - if the email ID is also the URL it's spam. I'm thinking I can do that with the basic antispam plugin so that'll be something fun for me to tinker with.
