This page answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the services that Mollom offers.
What is Mollom?
The Mollom web service helps you maintain the content quality of websites based on user-generated content. We use Machine Learning techniques, language analysis and a reputation system to ease moderation and improve the overall quality of your website’s content. To understand how Mollom works, it may be helpful to read through the tutorial for the Mollom Drupal client.
How does Mollom basically work?
If a user posts a comment or other content to your website, your web server sends it to Mollom to be checked. Mollom generates a quality score for the content, which helps it determine if the content is spam. Your web server then accepts or rejects the post, depending on quality standards that you set.
