[Feature Request] OOPSpam Anti-Spam API Support
Given Commento's emphatic emphasis on privacy, it might be useful to discuss a recent privacy-obsessed newcomer: the OOPSpam Anti-Spam API. I'm thankfully unaffiliated, but found the following commentary in a recent open-source comment system comparison instructive: [note: non-native English incoming]
That being said, some paid comment systems such as Commento is a privacy-focused solution. They rely on a subscription model instead of an advertisement. Commento uses Akismet as a spam-filter which is a red flag considering Akismet requires to submit your blog URL, user’s IP and user agent on top of the other optional parameters such as server information (such as
$_SERVERin PHP). Read more about the difference between Akismet and OOPSpam Anti-Spam API on A better Akismet alternative page.
Assuming there's a semblance of truthiness to the above, adding optional support for OOPSpam to Commento might be a collective win-win for this whole fledgling privacy-preserving comments industry. Or possibly not. I have no for-profit horse in this race and... admittedly have little idea what I'm talking about.
In any case: privacy. It's good, right? Thanks for all the self-hosted comment moderation, hard-working Commento devteam! You guys rock it.
