    Next Generation Mollom: The Enterprise-Ready Content Moderation Platform

    Yesterday, Dries Buytaert announced on his blog that Acquia has released the next generation of Mollom, the Mollom Content Moderation Platform. The new Mollom platform is being billed by Acquia as the "first cloud content moderation platform built for the enterprise". Mollom is capable of reducing the time that’s required to moderate large volumes of user-generated content. Personally having used Mollom to assist me in moderating small to medium sites, I suspect the need for something like Mollom is even greater for enterprises with an even larger web presence.

    Business websites can be crippled by spam; more than 90 percent of the content submitted to websites is unwanted spam, much containing links to irrelevant sites and suspicious offers. Manually deleting spam from comments, registration and contact-form submissions is arduous work. Mollom solves the spam problem for businesses with a cloud platform that filters and removes virtually all spam submissions.

  • CMS Report's Top Ten Content Management Stories of 2010

    What a great year 2010 was for content management. Open source CMS projects seemed to have grown up this year while proprietary systems appeared to continue in their evolution. While social publishing systems may not have conquered the traditional content management system, the CMS definitely took notice by integrating as many social media features developers could come up with. Below are the top ten stories of 2010 that were posted here at The stories in this list were ranked by…

  • We Hear You: Our spam filtering needs to be improved

    Like most website administrators, I have a long history of fighting spammers and protecting my sites from unwanted content. Over the years I've used a lot of tools and services to block spam from reaching the pages of my sites. In recent years, the service I've relied on most heavily is Mollom.  Mollom is a web service that helps you identify content quality and, more importantly, helps you stop spam on your blog, social network or community website Overall I've been very happy with the spam…

  • Mollom Stats from CMS Report

    As you can see from the statistics below, has kept Mollom pretty busy with over 99,500 pieces of spam blocked since we started using the service. One statistic I'd like to see collected is how much content Mollom detects as "Ham" but is later identified by the site administrators as actually "Spam". In other words, I'd be curious to see the statistics for Mollom's "false negatives".

  • Mollom: A solution for comment spam

    Passwords, user accounts, email verification. I have never liked requiring my website's visitors to register before they can leave a comment. There is a large segment of people that like to submit quality comments online, but they don't want to be required to leave their personal information there. So from the beginning, I have always allowed anonymous commenting by unregistered visitors and for the most part, they quality of the comments haven't suffered. However, allowing for anonymous comments also invited my site into a war against comment spam. My latest weapon to do the fighting for me in this war is Mollom.

  • SilverStripe and Mollom partner in the war against spam

    Lots of news this week regarding the open source SilverStripe CMS.  It is extremely unusual for CMS Report to post something on SilverStripe as well as something on comment spam twice in one week.  Yet, my two favorite companies, Silverstripe Ltd and Mollom, are going to have me do just that because of today's announcement that they've partnered together to help SilverStripe site owners block comment spam on their sites. SilverStripe and Mollom worked together on improving the code in the…

  • SilverStripe 2.3.1 adds Mollom and non-URL rewriter support

    Hot on the heels of SilverStripe 2.3.0 comes an update that resolves some bugs, adds support for six more languages in the CMS, and launches two great new features. Addtional languages supported include: Catalan (Andorra), English (United Kingdom), Spanish (Mexico), Indonesian (Indonesia), Bokmål (Norway), and Serbian (Serbia). Mollom is a smart and cheap way to reduce unwanted comments and other website spam. It uses a combination of bayesian filters and CAPTCHAs to protect forms on your…
