gravatar on spam list in admin (5 posts)

    Suggestion - when displaying the spam list from the admin panel (wp-admin/edit-comments.php?comment_status=spam) then the gravatar should not be calculated and displayed. It is a waste of effort, no one wants to see them. After all, the email addresses are mostly bogus.

    I agree, it does seem wasteful.

  3. On the other hand, sometimes legit users get flagged as spam. If you saw, say, mrmist's gravatar on the spam list, you'd double take and make sure it really WAS spam. (And then tell mrmist "I think someone's spoofing you.")

    Indeed, and as such the ticket has been closed for that reason. Which is fair enough, I hadn't considered it.

    Agreed - thanks.
