Blocking Posts with Certain Key Words

So, we've had this rash of dill-weeds (technical term there) trying to sell all manner of electronic crappery. I suppose it's not a new phenomenon but herein lies the question:

Can not there be a filter to block posts that contain more than a couple key words? Like "ipod", "laptop", "nokia", "apple", etc.

You get the idea. Obviously there could be legitimate posts containing talk of ipods and the like but it would seem fairly simple to block posts that contain 3 or 4 or, oh, 50 such references.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
