Spamfilter action

Post by Crapulard » Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:53 pm

Hello,

First, I'm sorry for my english, I'm french!

I configurated my spamfilter with action "warn", but it seems that it send a notice to the user too. I would send the spam on channel (for example #spamfilter ) and no notice to the user.

How is it possible to make that ?

Thank,

Crapulard

We do this so you cannot abuse the spamfilter feature to turn it into a spy feature.

It's better the user gets the warning if he/she spams something, right?

So it would be better if you could just add a * spamfilter and see what all the users on the network do?
As Syzop said, it's a measure so you can't spy on your users, otherwise your users wouldn't have any privacy.

But what if the user is abuser and spammer. It will be nice for someone like that.

Well, you can't set the spamfilter to hit just one person, iirc.
The request you're making would make possible to network admins/ircops to spy on others, and that's a very unethical thing to request.
If you have problems with spammers, just keep them out of your network with an akill/gline.
