What are the best candidates for a bayesian module that can run fairly
easily on an indymedia server?
Currently I'm looking at SpamAssassin which also has URI blacklists
and bad keywords etc built in, but it seems to be overkill (very email
oriented) and not that easy to pull out the relevant bits for web form
protection. I have to admit I don't really understand how bayes works
so I probably need something that's wrapped in a 'ready to go'
package, if possible.
Perhaps Indymedia could run a central web service similar to akismet
for the regional sites to use, that would be safe & secure from any
