More transparency for Antispam Bee
In the delivery state, Antispam Bee marks every pest as spam. You can view and manage spam entries in the WordPress administration area under Comments > Spam. Existing spam entries can be deleted with just one click by pushing the "empty spam" button in the spam overview. The periodic cleanup of the list can also be done by the plugin (see here). After each spam detection the Antispam plugin will notifiy via e-mail. In addition to general information, the e-mail contains further links for deleting and restoring the comment. The notification is optional and can be deselected in the settings.
