Akismet catches spam for moderator, but moderators are able to bypass spam

Reported by: r-a-y's profile r-a-y Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0
Component: Extend - Akismet Keywords: dev-feedback


In the Akismet module, moderators are able to bypass Akismet checks:

However, if Akismet catches a post written by a moderator as spam, the following is listed in the "Akismet History" metabox with two entries:

  • Akismet caught this post as spam.
  • Post status was changed to publish.


Perhaps changing the second log entry from "Post status was changed to publish" to "Akismet spam check overruled. Post status was published because user is a moderator" would be more clear and appropriate.
