Description

Hi, This become a really trouble in our forums... bbPress and Akismet are doing a great job to detect the spam topics/replies.

The problem is when a "human" post a reply/topic that marked automatically as a spam by Akismet, he think that something goes wrong and tried to post the topic/reply again and again !

Some users write the same topic/reply more than 10 times! and some users think that the key-master removes the topics/replies! So the admins always have to say that topic/reply was auto spammed.

An idea I can think about, Is to show the spammed topics/replies for the author with a red background ( the colour not important ) and a notice that says something like "This Topic/Reply is auto spammed by Akismet"

What's your opinion?

This is a valid concern, and happens on bbPress.org often enough.

Unlikely there's time in 2.4 (unless we get a starter patch going) so moving to 2.5.

Thanks jjj, I will do a patch when I have enough time, I am still confusing about the approach that I should use.

Some ideas:

1- Allow to show the author topics/replies, the spam topic/reply only shows for the author user if he hasn't enough caps.

2- Redirect the user to something like ?spammed=true after posting the topic/reply.

  • Milestone changed from 2.5 to 2.6

2.5 is going to focus on performance improvements. Moving to 2.6.

I like this. I don't think it's a good idea to give immediate feedback of the spam status. It'll only help the spammers to train the bots better.
