i know that some social bookmarking sites use akismet to filter out spam
links - as the developer/maintainer of such a site myself, i'm wondering if
akismet developers recommend this approach? here is how i would populate the
arguments of the API call:
- this would be a username, not a human name
- this would be blank, since we don't require a homepage url for signup
-- this would either be blank, or identical to the comment_content
- this would be the submitted bookmark URL. i could append some heuristics
(number of bookmarks, age of account, etc), but i'm not sure that would help
akismet because it would have no semantics associated with the values.
- i would use the user's homepage on Feed Me Links here.
- this would be "bookmark"
would using Akismet in this way be appropriate / useful?
thanks in advance,
