Although the spam filters seem to work well, I still need to inspect comment spam manually. The most helpful improvement for me currently would be to make that process quicker. Some things that could be done:
- Make the comment filtering form use GET instead of POST. (In general, search forms should use GET, anyway.) That would allow me to bookmark the spam comments list in the browser for faster access.
- Make it possible to display a larger number of comments per page. An extra drop-down menu for choosing the number of items would do it.
- Limit the amount of text shown per comment. Some spam comments are so long that I need to scroll a few times just to get to the next one.
- Make it easier to go from comments to purging spam. The easiest (for me) would be if the purge spam button were duplicated on the comment list. Also helpful would be a pulldown menu system for the main menus so that you could access the cleanup page without two full page loads.
