I am trying to execute an action, on an array that is setup like following:

$textarea = "www, hoer";
$spams = array("http", "www", "viagra", "sex", "games");

 foreach ($spams as $array) {
if ( eregi($spams,$textarea ) ) {
      echo "Something went wrong";

As you will guess, it should execute what is between {} if it finds any of the words which are in the array, present in the text area

I have tried this with for (i=0;i<4;i++) but both of them generate errors, which after fixed, result in an empty output page after deliberately testing

thank you heaps
