Release Notes

**There is a later release, which is probably what you want.** CleanModQueue v2012.05.23


This update includes the ability to specify the order of evaluation of the heuristic rules, and also to specify wildcard rules for authors and domains.

This generalizes the tool to make it much more broadly applicable.

For example:
  • to specify an author whitelist: In the Settings dialog, provide the list of known good authors in the textbox for blessed authors. Don't specify anything in the textbox for known spammer authors. Tick the box for "deny all authors". Specify ordering to be: Approve Users, Deny Users. Leave everything empty for known good and known spammy domains.
  • to blacklist some domains: In the Settings dialog, give the list of known bad domains in the textbox for known spam domains. Specify nothing else in any other textboxes. Don't tick any checkboxes for wildcards. Specify ordering as: Deny Domains, and then anything else.
  • to blacklist some domains and some users: In the Settings dialog, provide the list of known bad domains in the textbox for known spam domains. Likewise, provide the list of known spam authors in the appropriate textbox. Specify nothing else in any other textboxes. Don't tick any checkboxes for wildcards. Specify ordering as: Deny Domains, Deny Authors.
  • to blacklist some things and whitelist others: Do as above, but also specify known good authors and domains. Don't tick any checkboxes for wildcards. Specify ordering as desired for your situation. Ordering will determine rule priority. For example, if there is a post from a "known spam" author referring to a "known good" domain, that represents a conflict and your rule priority stipulates how to resolve it. If the ordering has Deny Users before Allow Domains, then that post will be removed. If the converse, then that post will be approved.

As you can see the type of rules and the ability to specify ordering opens up various possibilities for automatically processing posts.
