IP Blacklist Cloud
[resolved] Intrusive and Illegitimate Spam Report Listed (5 posts)

    When I installed this plugin, I assumed only valid spam reports would be circulated.

    Imagine my surprise when a comment approved for my site ended up on this IPBlacklist Cloud page: http://ip-finder.me/spamreport-126244/

    I have major problems with this:
    1. This comment was not spam and was never reported as such.
    2. The entire comment being republished on this page constitutes duplicate content which I don't appreciate.
    3. This woman's email address and other data was listed and she was misindentified as spam all because she commented on my site while I used this plugin.

    I"m furious. I don't see anyway for this page to be removed.

    I regret using this plugin and have deleted it. I urge others never to use it. Your commenters will be unfairly called spammers and their emails will be blasted over the internet as spam emails and comments from your site will be republished without permission!!!

    Terrible situation.

    Your commenters will be unfairly called spammers and their emails will be blasted over the internet as spam emails and comments from your site will be republished without permission!!!

    You have to turn off this option from Settings "Auto post comments to Cloud for spam reports:" because everytime someone comments on your site, it gets posted on my server to check spam details.

    This means, you have SET the permission to allow checking spam automatically. Please refrain posting negative comments about plugins before fully understanding and setting up them.

    Please check your email about more details.

    I am setting this Topic as "Solved".

    About removing details from my site, I have already removed that now. Please turn off that option.

    You are most welcome :)
    I have now removed "Auto post comments to Cloud for spam reports" option and now users of this plugin have to check spam report report manually by clicking on "Calculate" for each comment.

    I have added new features, please check changelog of version 1.9
