  • Next Generation Mollom: The Enterprise-Ready Content Moderation Platform

    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.

  • 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.

  • Mollom Stats from CMS Report

    As you can see from the statistics below, CMSReport.com 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.

  • Battling Web spam - Part 1

    IBM developerWorks: "Spam on the Web is one of the biggest threats to a modern Web developer.

  • Tech Blog Highlights: Google SearchWiki, Mollom

    I'm doing a little morning reading at some of my favorite Internet spots.  A couple of this morning's IT related posts that caught my attention:Rich Hoeg (eContent) has created a very nice tutorial/screencast on Google's SearchWiki.  Personally, I can't decide if this is a good move for Google or not.  It seems to me the biggest benefit of Google is that you go there, do a search, find the link you want, and get out.  Internet junkies like me already are too distracted with places like Digg.com…
