    Comment filtering. Link to this post

    I'm really keen to implement some comment filtering on a site running Silverstripe. There should be an easy way to filter out comments that use foul language by looking up a list of banned words?

    Just a thought at this point. Thanks.

    The problem with banned words is that people innovate faster than banned words list. If you cannot write "shit" then someone will just write "sh1t" or "shite" or " shi-t", etc. Even if you do ban the words, there's nothing preventing insults occuring with plain language; e.g. "You're as smelly as a rabid dog".

    On a similar note, the blog module released today (See our homepage) does have some techniques to limit comment spam; Akismet and Math Question;

    Thank Sigurd. That's certainly something I hadn't thought too much about. I will definitely look into the anti-spam protection though. Akismet looks like a good service.
