I’m happy with Akismet’s spam filtering. What I’d like to find is a plugin to reduce the tedium of double-checking all the spam. I currently have 484 messages in my spam queue, and quite a few of them will be multiple screens in length, so I have to scroll through screen after screen and page after page of this garbage.
What’s the best way to reduce this? I can think of two main ways, which could both be used:
* Display an extract of each comment – maybe the beginning, maybe the most obvious spammy bit. Then it becomes a bit like scanning the spam folder in Gmail, where I can see the subject and the first words of the email in a single line, and can check 100 messages in each page.
* Have a separate “definitely spam” bin that I don’t need to check. E.g. If a message contains 40 links and multiple terms common to spam, I’m happy to trust the spam filter if it says “definitely spam.”
I think I saw a plugin that has the second feature, but now I can’t find it.
