Feature Request (1 post)

    I would like to request a feature in the Akismet configuration that would let the Admin turn off the automatic clearing of the spam queue.

    I want to collect the IP addresses of the spammers identified by Akismet so that I can add them to my .htaccess deny from list. I find this to be a very useful way of augmenting the functionality of Akismet because Akismet has false negatives, that is to say spam that it misses which I identify by hand. Those spammers tend to spam me many times. By hand blocking them in my .htaccess file I stop them. I do this periodically, collecting the IP addresses from my spam list. When Akismet empties the spam list automatically it thwarts my ability to properly handle these spammers.

    Please add a configuration feature to Akismet to turn off the automatic emptying of the spam queue.

    Thank you,
