Lazy Moderator

Description

This is how you moderate comments with WordPress this far: First you receive an email from WordPress notifying about a new comment (whoohoo!) Eagerly, you click the “Approve it” link. A new tab opens with a form asking you to log into the administrator area. You input the username and that long long password, click “Log Me In.” There, you are welcomed with a silly “Are you sure?” confirmation message and two buttons: “Yes I’m sooooo sure” and “No I’m not sure at all, my $200 mouse was just malfunctioning.”

Ever felt that it’s a little too much? Well, if you are that lazy (just like I am), then Lazy Moderator is just for you! Now the notification email will be appended with real “one-click” links to help you moderate the comment with just, well, one click. Yes, one click and it’s done. No login. No confirmation. No hassles. No shit.

FAQ

Is this plugin secure? I mean, I don’t even have to log in to moderate comments? How is this possible?

Well, this depends on how “secure” you want it to be. Each moderation action is associated with a unique, random, irreversible 40-character long string (called “token”). As a blog owner/author, you have these tokens attached in the moderation links, ready for you to use. Now, in order to moderate the comments like you do, another person must make a guess. If he’s lucky enough to guess a 40-character long string perfectly and successfully hacks into your system, DON’T SUE HIM! Instead, make friends with him and ask him to buy you some lottery tickets.

What’s that with all the drawings after moderation?

Most of them are rage comics. I like them a lot, so I decided to use them for some personality.
