Support » Plugins » Akismet: Notify commentor comment marked as spam?

  • I’ve search everywhere to find this, but I can’t…is there a way to let the commentor know their comment has been marked as spam? Similar to how comments waiting for moderation are displayed to the user, but not everyone. I can’t find any documentation…thanks!

  • No, I don’t believe there is. You’d have to send them an email onve you’ve marked it as spam in the WP admin. I don’t think doing what you’re asking for is a very good idea anyway, considering we’re talking about a spam filter – the odds are that the overwhelming proportion of comments marked as spam will be just that.

    I’m thinking at least a message or something in case a false positive happens would be nice. It could be anything, just to indicate the comment was received.

    Sure the majority is legitimate spam, but I’m concerned about the few false positives that irritate my readers…

    Have you seen the Akismet stats page?

    Can you image how many emails that would be…. ?

    Let alone propagating more spam, now through emails, to false return addresses… Eventually your site would start getting blocked.

    No, it doesn’t have to be an email…In fact, I’d prefer it wasn’t. Just a message above the comment box or something letting them know you’re previous comment was marked as spam. Some sort of confirmation that something happened to the comment.

    I’m thinking it might be possible to alter some php files to make it do this…anyone have any suggestions? My main goal is to let a user know their comment has been marked as spam via a message by the comment box. Not to send an email or anything like that.

    No one?
