Enforces the main WordPress admin setting â€œComment author must have a previously approved commentâ€ (under Options â€¦ Discussion) within Spam Karma – The plugin ensures that the highest karma level a comment from a new author can achieve is -1 so that all comments must be moderated before appearing on your site.
Why it does it:
I have had reports from people suffering from periodic torrents of abusive/spam comments when there site is linked from an online forum – These comments always come from new authors and they would like to force those comments into moderation however well they fare in the normal Spam Karma 2 checks.
Important Usage Note:
In order to get the best performance from this Spam Karma 2 plugin you must ensure that you disable the Captcha Check Treatment plugin – otherwise all the commenters that get pushed into moderation by SK2 Moderate will get the chance to rescue themselves by passing the Captcha test!
