I'd love to leave Redmine open and allow anonymous folks to create tickets and such, but before I even look to see if there's a way to wiggle that in, this is a must. There must be a way (Akismet, ReCaptcha, etc.) to prevent spammers from abusing the system before that's feasible.

Seeing a fair amount of spam lately, I'm going to see if I can't provide the necessary hooks for anti-spam plugins. Ideally, I'd like it to be flexible enough to support content-filterers (e.g. Akismet, Mollom) and captchas for young users (e.g. Recaptcha). I'll post my patch here when I have it ready.

Got diverted by other things, but I found this akismet library in ruby today. That should provide a decent starting point.

Okay, this is just a first go, but it doesn't work yet.

  • Not sure how to get the request object into the model to work with
  • Not sure how to get the site url
  • Doesn't allow any review of whether or not something's spam, just outright denies the object creation. Instead, it should create the message, but set the spam column to true. The forum controller then needs to filter those out.

But yeah, just a start.

Hi,

@Brad Beattie
This Akismet anti-spam for Rails might be useful.
"Easy Akismet and TypePad AntiSpam integration for Rails - Rakismet" by Josh French : https://github.com/joshfrench/rakismet

It exposes query and review submission methods like
spam? (predicate)
ham! (false positive)
spam! (submit)

Regards,
Guru M.
