Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
(1) I want Mollom to remove/identify spam, but I also want to manually inspect and approve ham.
Background: I look after a Drupal site on which comments are currently pre-moderated: "post comments without approval" is unticked for regular users and we regularly check the approval queue to publish genuine comments and delete spam & comments which break the site rules.
I'd like to start using Mollom to automatically remove/flag spam and profanity, both to reduce our workload and to remove human error from the spam-identifying process.
However, I can't work out a way to incorporate it into our workflow. Spam and profanity are not the only issues we deal with; the site prohibits other types of comment. I want Mollom to deal with the spam/profanity, but still leave ham in the approval queue to await manual inspection.
Is that possible? Something like http://drupal.org/node/938846 would work, but that appears to have stalled. Is there another way to achieve what I need?
(2) I'd like to be able to see the comments Mollom discards.
Background: When first running Mollom, I want to ensure the false positive rate is acceptably close to zero. We have many users in countries which produce a lot of spam and I don't want them to be blocked for sharing an IP address with a spammer.
The normal way to do this is to tick 'Retain the post for manual moderation', but that results in spam going into the approval queue, which (as explained above) also contains our genuine messages. There seems therefore to be no way to check Mollom's false positive rate without ticking "post comments without approval", which we are unable to do.
Is there any way to inspect which messages are flagged by Mollom without selecting "post comments without approval" for users?
Thanks in advance for your help on these two questions!
