Filed under Dealing with People, General, Version Control, a little about life
If you read many of the comments coming into this site, you have noticed there is a bit of spam sneaking through. I apologize first off. Secondly, I am trying to do something about it.
The next hope is to make sure nothing ‘ugly’ or ‘hardcore’ gets through as well as no ham being marked as spam.
Enter moderation. Today I started another step in moderating the spam on this site. Before I let Akismet deal with whether a comment should be: ham, moderated, or spam. All commenters must have a comment previously marked as ham to be automatically approved as ham, otherwise they will be moderated.
FYI this can be done by going to Options -> Discussion -> Comment author must have a previously approved comment.
I would also like to see the opposite situation be an option here. If a commenter has been approved before, any comments thought to be spam should then be moderated.
So how about we do some testing folks? Place comments below.
