Double-checking spam filter
|Reported by:||Owned by:||Dirk Stöcker|
I'm getting a considerable amount of bug spam even after Akismet filtering. Typically the same spam will be posted again within the hour, but by then Akismet has learned to recognize the contents as spam.
I suspect it might be helpful to run recent bug tickets through a second, asynchronous round of spam filtering, perhaps a few minutes after they are first submitted: "this was not considered spam when it was submitted, but what about now? In retrospect, was it the front of a fresh spam wave?"
Checking tickets retroactively and deleting ones that fail is probably harder to do than the current synchronous check. But for my small single-person hobby site, it might make the difference between having a near-permanent spam presence despite constant attention (a massive drain on productivity), and having just bits of spam that disappear automatically after a few minutes.
An option to quarantine new tickets, so that they don't show up at all until after a delayed spam check would also be nice, though probably harder.
