#209 legitimate comments being caught up in the spam queue
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by ryanlerch.

We seem to get a bunch of legitemate comments caught up in the spam queue. While this would normally seem an issue with akismet, for some reason all of the legitimate comments that land in the spam folder are marked in the spam folder with "Cleared by Akismet" -- no i really have no idea why they are ending up there.

Would someone be able to investigate why this is happening?


This may or may not be related to the topic, but have we considered getting some kind of Captcha sort of check for comments? Even when some legitimate comments are caught as spam, it can be difficult to sift through a spam queue of 80 comments to find one legitimate comment. I feel like a Captcha might just eliminate the amount of spam we receive daily in the first place - I'm not sure what solutions are available that might be Fedora-friendly. Google's reCaptcha is definitely a nice solution.

I haven't noticed this as much of an issue lately, and I'm not sure if there is any more configuration we can do to resolve this. For the last month, I've hardly seen any legitimate comments slip into the spam queue, unlike even two or three months ago.

We agreed in the meeting to close the ticket with no resolution needed.
