AI Comment Moderator - Saving You Time

Keeping it Real: AI Comment Moderation – Financial and Ethical Maze

Hey there!

I’ve been in the tech game as a CTO for over 15 years, and trust me, I’ve seen my fair share of tricky situations. Today, let’s dive into something that’s been bugging me about AI comment moderation. It’s kind of a thorny issue, but bear with me; it’s interesting.

The Standard Route and Its Costs

So, here’s the scoop: AI moderation systems are resource hogs. They have to sift through each comment, assess its content, and decide if it’s a keeper or not. This is the standard—it’s just how things are done today. And because these operations munch through resources like there’s no tomorrow, businesses offering these services typically charge you based on how much computing power you use.

Now, on the surface, this setup seems fair—companies need to cover their operational costs, and hey, electricity certainly isn’t free. But let’s peel back another layer here.

Where Things Get Sticky

The twist in the story comes when your website starts getting bombarded with spam. More spam equals more comments to check, which means higher costs for you. As someone who’s been around the tech block, I find this raises a kind of ethical, well, let’s call it an ambiguity. Your moderation provider profits more when you’re having problems—that’s more cash out of your pocket when you’re already in a bind because of spam. That setup feels a little awkward to me.

How We Do Things Differently at TechSpokes

At TechSpokes, we decided to tackle this head-on. We’ve developed an AI Comment Moderator plugin for WordPress that not only zaps spam but also automates the publishing of legitimate comments that meet your criteria. This drastically cuts down the pile that needs human eyes.

But here’s the real kicker: our business model. We charge a flat rate per website, per month, or year. No fees based on the number of comments or the volume of spam. Why? Because it doesn’t sit right with us to profit from your problems. And here’s another thing: this model naturally pushes us to keep refining our technology to minimize the final costs you pay.

Our Smart Approach Saves You Big

We’re all about saving you money and hassle. Our plugin includes what we call “fortress mode“—a neat feature that, once it identifies a spammy link, begins to block it locally, without needing to repeatedly check with AI whether it’s spam. Here’s where it gets good: during a massive spam attack, I only pay for a few API calls in the beginning to confirm that a link is spammy. But after a couple of calls, our system knows to handle it itself without any further cost. Meanwhile, the classic AI solutions out there keep charging you to check the same spammy links over and over, which can add up to hundreds or even thousands of calls for just one spammy domain. Not cool, right?

This proactive approach not only keeps your site cleaner but also aligns our interests with yours—we make our money by providing a reliable, efficient service, not by capitalizing on your challenges. Our choice of business model essentially forces us to continuously innovate to reduce your long-term costs. It’s a win-win.

Looking to the Future

And we’re not stopping there. We plan to extend this logic to IP addresses and other types of comment data to enhance protection and efficiency. Our philosophy is simple: the less you spend on fighting spam, the better it is for both of us.
