Weakening built-in spam control in WP comments?
Hi, I’m using WP 1.5.2 and I’m finding that (what I think is) built-in spam control is just ditching certain user commments.
It seems to ditch the comments that have:
– “too many” URLs
– URLs that are too long?
– or both.
The comments just disappear into the ether without a trace, no warning message.
This seems like good behavior; the only problem is that my users are very prone to leaving valid, legitimate comments with lots of urls in the comment body text. So I want to at least partially disable this apparent spam control feature because it is frustrating them.
Any thoughts on how to start — and any possible gotchas that might be involved here?
