description: Test notices against the Activity Spam service.
This plugin is part of StatusNet 1.1.0. You can enable it by adding this line to your config.php:
You need a few configuration options to make it work.
- protocol, hostname and port of the server you're using. Probably "https://spamicity.info/".
- The consumer key for your app. You need to get one manually from https://spamicity.info/ or your spam server.
- The OAuth secret for your app. You need to get one manually from https://spamicity.info/ or your spam server.
- Whether to hide detected spam from regular users. Default false; make it true once you're sure the spam filter works OK.
Plugin has been activated on identi.ca. The first version just stores a spam score in the database.
added a toggle on all notices:
- dot: no spam
- exclamation point: spam.
some work done to hide posts that are either from silenced users (usually spammers) or that score badly with our spam filter. moderators will still see spam; I'm working on better UI (maybe crosshatched or dimmed out). One problem is that mod-helpers might see varying UIs. I might need to make some fine-tuning work over the next couple of days. We actually cache visibility info for about 5 minutes, so it takes a few minutes for them to disappear. Another important fix! 
Notices by silenced users and spam-detected users don't show up in timelines. 
- Show the spam score to mods
* Hide spammy posts from non-mods
* Add a "this is spam" button to train spam server
* Add a "this is not spam" button to train spam server
- Optional threshold for spam probability
- the "dot" isn't lining up correctly when the location is long (will be fixed).
- next step is to integrate with silencing.
- when a user is silenced, train all their notices as spam.
- Unsilenced => train as ham.
- if a user has posted N many spammy notices, they're automatically silenced.
