The internet contains nearly as much Spam as it does HTML. A new generation of web applications must start out from their infancy iron-clad with defences against Spam. Geeklog2 is no exception. The objective of this project is to develop a plugin for the Geeklog2 system to provide spam filtering.


  • Implement a Geeklog2 plugin to provide an API for spam filtering
  • Include an extensible framework (like SpamX) for extending the abilities of the spam filter
  • Include modules to support key anti-spam systems including
  • LinkSleeve
  • Akismet
  • Project Honey Pot
  • SWOT
  • Local blacklists
  • Bad Behaviour

Level of Difficulty


The SpamX approach, with the full OO world of PHP5 seems to be a good base approach, and we have code to talk to the above listed key anti-spam projects largely available. However, ensuring this is a performant, scaleable, extensible, maintainable and well implemented solution may pose some challenges.
