website comments have lots of spam
We have a problem with doc comments on the website and lots of spam.
There is also no way to easily let other people moderate the comments to mark comments as spam.
Here are some notes about ways to progress.
== Plan 1 - Clean up comments, and import them into disquss ==
We have a json file with all of the comments .
Disquss(a commenting service) has been used with great success on the project comments. It has anti spam tools, and a moderation interface. Disquss supports importing comments (in WXR format ) too.
So perhaps we can clean the json file of bad comments, and then convert the comments into the WXR comment format for disquss to import.
== Plan 2 - start fresh with disquss. ==
Maybe we don't even import the comments into disquss at the moment, and just start a fresh with the disquss ones.
The import of the old comments can be done later at a different time.
== Plan 3 - something else? ==
Maybe there is another option?
