This plugin has been developed as a spam protection and security module. On the one hand it recognizes most of the spam on your page and marks it for you for further processing, on the other hand it secures your user accounts against unauthorized access.
The spam is not automatically deleted, it is simply marked and displayed accordingly in your admin area so that you can recognize it more quickly and decide for yourself what happens to it. This is intended to ensure that incorrectly marked ads that do not contain spam are not accidentally deleted.
