Auto Hide 0.1.1

Auto Hide is a role-based comment moderation scheme, designed for weeding out spammers from the pool of new members. It works by screening all new comments (including those which open a discussion) and edits, and automatically flagging comments as deleted (and discussions as inactive) for any user having the Auto Hide flag in their permissions.

This extension also provides a moderation screen (similar to a search page), where moderators can unhide comments and discussions that are acceptable.

Note: this extension requires PHP 5.

See the readme for additional info.
