Antispam is one of the more out-of-the-way corners of Dreamwidth development.
In order to even see what's in the spam-handling pages, your dreamhack's basic-antispam user will need privs.
The syntax to grant the necessary privs on the console is: priv grant siteadmin:spamreports,sysban:talk_ip_test username
The antispam pages are located at http://www.dreamwidth.org/admin/spamreports
Antispam users also use http://www.dreamwidth.org/admin/console/ sometimes.
Antispam users have access to the sysban management page but don't often go there now. http://www.dreamwidth.org/admin/sysban
The following roles, roughly, touch antispam stuff:
- Site Admin - top of the priv chain of trust; manages large-scale sysbans. privs: admin:*
- Terms of Service - courtesy antispam privs, can suspend
- Antispam Lead - can grant antispam privs to new spamwhackers, can suspend OpenID accounts, can suspend regular accounts, has finduser email.
- Basic Antispam User - can sysban:talk_ip_test, can view spam reports, can close spam reports.
If you're testing to make sure nothing has broken, you probably will want users with these sets of privs. (to do: add actual privs list for each role.)
