Finally I will soon release Akocomment 2.2.5 (the one which is working on my homepage) with comment tracking among other new functionalities...
Please use the tracker at sourceforge and give me (us) ideas of what kind of functionalities You want to see in it. If You want to avoid the hassle of creating an account or do not know how to, You can also use this thread to submit ideas as comments.
My ideas Are:
Hashcash is not intrusive, user has nothing to do to enter a comment (the cryptographic anti spammer check occur in the background)
SecurityImages use captcha, and so force user to enter character he has read in an image
I was thinking since a long time of using a 3rd party authority with is more smarter than me in oder to determine if the comment is a real spam, and I found this:
AkismetAutomatic Kismet (Akismet for short) is a collaborative effort to make comment and trackback spam a non-issue and restore innocence to blogging, so you never have to worry about spam again. When a new comment, trackback, or pingback comes to your blog it is submitted to the Akismet web service which runs hundreds of tests on the comment and returns a thumbs up or thumbs down. With Akismet, you're always protected up-to-the-second from the latest dirty tricks of spammers. There's no maintenance, no upgrading, no hassle.
This work as webservice, so code changes are minimal and quite easy to do
A Plugin system to allow extensions more easily (Plugin can be registered in a linked list or similar) at runtime
Get inspiration from existing commenting systems, or simply be creative! Please submit ideas fast! I will then assign priority them in the tracker
