Response from Sean and Matthew...

Quote:
Currently we are just Spam filtering Forum Messages.

If a message gets flagged by users as Spam enough times to be deleted it is added to the filter heuristics.

If a message is flagged as Spam by the Spam filter, then it is sent to the moderation page.

If it is deleted in the moderation page, it is added to the filter heuristics.

Adding a message to the Spam filter heuristics increase the probability that similar messages will be flagged as Spam by the Spam filter.



We will be turning the Spam filter on for Q&A shortly.


Hit post too soon Blush | :O

So we're both right! At the moment anyway Poke tongue | ;-P
