In addition to comment moderation keeping comments which include specific words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP, I think there should be a setting where comments which include specific words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP or the names of members should automatically be published in real time as their posts are. I have written to Askimet three times about my two month old multi-user blog and Askimet issues. Askimet continues to put almost all my comments comments into spam. Only the administrator and author get theirs through in real time. I have lost the participation of certain members. Others are increasingly frustrated. I do not know what the best discussion settings would be.
The blog I need help with is whatbirdisthis.wordpress.com.
