Comment whitelist in discussion settings
|Reported by:||danielbachhuber||Owned by:|
Currently, there are methods for automatically flagging comments for moderation or blacklisting comments, but there's no way to auto-approve comments that meet a certain criteria.
In Discussion Settings, it would be nice to have "Comment Whitelist" option to automatically approve comments from a specific IP address, using a specific email address, or matching certain keywords.
One use case: a conference or workshop where lots of people are posting comments from the same IP address often invokes the "Slow down, you're posting too fast" message. Instead, we should be able to add the IP address to the whitelist (possibly temporarily) so that everyone can comment without hitting the restriction.
The concern I can think of is that this would add another large paragraph box to the Discussion Settings view.
