GameZoo Akismet

A spam filter from the creators of WordPress, proudly brought to you by GameZoo.

Detailed description:

This mod brings your forum the notorious antispam filter Akismet. It features a queue to review spams and restore hams, and a "mark as spam" option offered to trusted users.
Moreover spammers are automatically banned, and when their post is judged as real spam and deleted from the review queue the spammers' personal details are sanitized.

Here's what the spam queue looks like: … kismet.jpg

Version 1.0

- adapted to the new hook+addons system (hence the major revision change).
- the spammer's user profile is sanitized immediately, instead of waiting for some admin to review the queue.
- added 'testing mode' for devs wishing to edit this plugin: every post is marked as spam by akismet, but the user will not be banned. The request sent to Akismet is prepended to the message put in the spam queue.
- admins and mods cannot be marked as untrusted users for the 'mark as spam' option.
- admins are always trusted users for the 'mark as spam' option.
- if the language file doesn't exist in the language directory (e.g. 'Italian'), the English file is loaded instead.
