This thread is to discuss comment improvements in 1.7.

Comments are being refactored in order for anti-spam to work consistently with other content items.

Threaded comments have been added as an option.

Current state of the dev:

- Refactored to use drivers for Display and Edit (@Piedone)
- Removed the current implementation of Akismet 
- Use Orchard.Antispam parts (reCaptcha, Spam filters, Submition limit)
- Threaded discussions
- Ability to delete spam as it is detected if you don't care about false positive
- Ability to require users to be authenticated to comment

Can be demonstrated during next meeting.

Now I have reCaptcha enabled on my website, I have absolutely not more spam in comments. Drawback is that now I'd like to know how much spam I am saving ;). Maybe it could be a feature. 

What do you think, should we be able to see historical information about each spam or just a counter is sufficient ? This would not be content items for sure, just a record to have metadata, and deleting it would be safe. Or maybe a counter for each period (day, week, month, year, ...). This could use the Voting module then.

if you want me to be a beta site for that, I would be happy to :)

Yes. Aggregation per day or maybe per hour seems enough. Knowing how much spam you're dodging is interesting info yes.
