Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-11880) add charset spam filter
Date Tue, 17 May 2016 07:25:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-11880?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15286174#comment-15286174

Greg Stein commented on INFRA-11880:

Sounds great. I'll happily take your conservative approach and my "Delete" button, over a
too-aggressive filter.

Please reach out to the SpamAssassin PMC for assistance, if you haven't done so already. I
bet they would happily provide some extra hands and test cases for you.

> Much of the recent spam to the lists that I moderate use cyrillic or some middle eastern
character set (hebrew? arabian?). We do not allow non-English on *most* of our mailing lists,
so such messages should have a seriously high spam score. The same would apply to most/all
non-latin charsets (eg. also chinese/japanese/etc).
> AOO may have lists where such is allowed, so it may be necessary to have an "escape hatch"
for the filter on a per-list basis.
> In email, Chris mentioned that SpamAssassin appears to have some language-based filters.
