Currently Mahara supports objectionable material reporting for views only. The prossibility of reporting should not be limited to the views only and be extended to other Mahara features that potentially can contain objectionable matherial.

View

It should be possible to report comments, notifications should go to Institution admin.

Forum

It should be possible to report posts, notifications should go to Forum Moderators.

Wall

It should be possible to report wall posts, notifications should go to the Wall owner.

Blog

It should be possible to report blog comments, notifications should go to the blog owner.

Automatic content filtering

Objectionable content is currently only reported manually and thus may never be discovered.

It might be possible to include a dictionary against which site content is checked and put into the objectionable category for institution admins (for profiles / pages that were created by a member of that institution) / site admins (for groups and the default institution). It will not be possible to find all offenses, e.g. if punctuation is found, but some initial serious offender could be detected.

If this feature is implemented then:

  • it should be disabled by default
  • only flag content to be reviewed by the admin (i.e. the content is not taken down and is still accessible)
