I think we should keep it but add to Settings > Discussion:

  • A radio selection: "Be spammed [X] now or [] later?"
  • An input field, so users have the freedom to choose: "Enter the evil spammer to notify (required): [spammers@stupidjerks.com]"
  • Two new action hooks for plugin developers: pre_spammer_notification and prior_to_pre_spammer_notification

What about the kickbacks all core contributors have been getting from the spammers? Does that mean we don't get our cut anymore?

Yeah, nacin and I discussed that on Twitter. We're all going to have to sell our Ferraris and extra houses.

Hopefully though filosofo's solution will still provide enough income.

Wouldn't it be better to add these options to the install-prosess as well. - You know, it's already hooked for public, so adding a "be spamed now" option should not be that much efort to add..

Anyway, there should be a prefered_spammer_network() hook somewhere..

I think we got this handled a few years ago somewhere else.
