Akismet stats

JasonBarnabeJasonBarnabe Cynical Salamander ✭✭

I enabled the Akismet plugin in Vanilla 2.8 and signed up for an Akismet account. It's flagging some spam, but there are misses and false positives. That's fine and expected, but the stats on the Akismet console always show 0 for Missed Spam and 0 for False Positives.

I would guess what would be required is that Vanilla needs to send info to Akismet when something is marked as spam by a non-Akismet method, as well as sending info to Akismet when something is marked as non-spam in Vanilla.

Or am I missing something?

    Yeah, we don't currently close the feedback loop by reporting back to Akismet. We have an Akismet 2.0 in (stalled) development if anyone wants to pitch in. There's a huge risk in playing with that addon since a drastic swing in either direction (misses vs false positives) could have big repercussions. We were slow-rolling the change and it got stalled when the main developer got pulled for another project. I'd expect to see us pick it back up later in 2019 if no one from open source picks up the torch sooner.

    Old branch is here:

    WIP PR:

    Step 1 would be to re-base that branch against core (vanilla/vanilla) since we've moved that addon.
