It didn’t take long for the comment spammers to figure out we’re running WordPress here. I got a dozen requests to moderate comments this morning. Mark did too, but he had turned off the notification in WP so there may be a bug there somewhere. Expect test comments to appear and disappear on this post over the next hour or so!
Later… Fixed it. There’s no check for the “moderation_notify” flag . Here’s how to patch your own WordPress system:
Edit wp-includes/functions.php and add the following lines to the function
if( get_settings( "moderation_notify" ) == 0 )
