site admin comments marked as spam! (1 post)

    Hi,

    Thanks for this new anti-spam plugin. So far it seems to be working but... In fact, a bit TOO rigorous.

    I've been seeing some false positives. Comments that are obviously not spam are marked as such. And what's worse: some of those comments where my own! Amazing... Is it because I am using Project Honey Pot ?

    So what I propose is two things:
    1. NEVER check messages that are posted by a site Admin or any other LOGGED IN user except public Subscriber role.
    2. display a message to any user that has just submitted a comment that has been 'caught' as spam by Antispam Bee to warn them about what is happening and why their comment does not even appear as 'under moderation' to them...

    You see, what's even worse than Spam is... disappearing messages and frustrated readers! I'd rather have some spam getting through than false positives and angry visitors that won't come back because their long, time-consuming, well written comment vanished before their eyes.

    Well, you get the point. This is not meant as a rant ;) just some points of critique / suggestions to make this plugin even better...
