When we check the Project Honey Pot database, our options are moderate or reject.
When we configure Spam Phrases, our options are moderate or reject.
Yet when Akismet flags something as spam, our only option is: moderate
So far I end up deleteting 100% of what Akismet flags as spam in XenForo, and I've had the same experience for years with WordPress. I don't expect the percentage ever to drop, i.e. I really don't need to review these posts at all.
I don't even want to see the stuff in the first place. With XenForo it takes two passes to get the rubbish out of the way:
- Pass one is when XenForo tells me I have posts to moderate, so I scroll down the list and flag every single one for deletion, then press the big button at the bottom ... which doesn't really delete anything.,
- Then I have to go into the forum view (where they would fill 1-3 pages daily if I let them accumulate) and permanently delete all the garbagenous thread so they won't ruin the experience for those with moderator & admin privileges.
Action if Akismet flags a post as spam:
- Require manual approval before the post is display
- Permanently delete the post
