Does anyone know if the keyword filter is case sensative?  I would say yes because nigeria gets blocked, but Nigeria doesn't.

Do we put both cases in there?

RedSpyder,

I have ZERO non-RegEx Keywords so this discussion is for RegEx:

(nigeria)  will only catch an exact match (Strict RegEx) but
((?i)nigeria) will ignore the case of any character.

I believe that SpamFilters version of RegEx will assume non case checking if the pattern is all lower case but if you put just one cap in the pattern, it becomes case sensitive (perhaps for only that character ... ).  I use the "Strict" (?i) to force co case checking so that I know exactly what the RegEx will do ... I do not like guessing.
