Working on some moderation tools today. As I've written about before, we see a ton of spammy SEO / link-building content published every day, and have had to put some automated filters in place to keep it at bay.

Besides these loose rules that take automated action on users and posts, we also have a manual side, where a second tier of suspicious-looking posts are emailed to us to review and optionally take action on. But these reports come in through individual emails and make moderation very, very tedious.

So to speed things up, I'd like to add a post moderation queue on the admin dashboard, to make it easier to watch for widespread spammy behavior and quickly stop it. Then, as I know WriteFreely instances see plenty of spammers too, I'll port it over there once it works well.
