A quick draft of an implementation (1.68 KB, patch)
2006-06-15 21:11 UTC, Mormegil

Description Mormegil 2006-06-15 21:05:56 UTC
Having one global spam blacklist ([[meta:Spam blacklist]]) for all MediaWiki-powered wikis on the Internet is 
difficult. It would be useful to have an option of limiting the effect of some entries to e.g. only Wikimedia sites 
(or the other way around, to all except Wikimedia sites).

A quick draft of an implementation

An implementation (probably not perfect) of such behavior:

Every blacklist entry can be marked with a special comment (beginning with an
exclamation mark) which limits its effect to either ONLY sites matching a given
regexp, or to all EXCEPT sites matching that regexp.

spammer1\.example\.org	#!+$	# this spammer is blacklisted
only on * 

This has the advantage of being at least basically backwards-compatible (sites
using old version of SpamBlacklist still work filtering all entries ignoring
the comments).
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-06-22 20:10:18 UTC
I've instead created a local whitelist, which local admins 
can edit at MediaWiki:Spam-whitelist. It's in the same format 
as the main blacklist.
