Remember that almost 4 years ago we saw a code that cause the comments are longer ?, then watch where we now have an easier way even if it is to control the content posted on our website have a minimum quantity for quality is still no plugin that detects .
I mean, Comment Minimum Length , a very simple plugin but will replace that code shared anything for 4 years old! (sorry for myself heavy with this is that I am surprised that we were talking about this already in 2008)
Its operation is simple, you install it, activate it and go to the plugin settings page to set 2 parameters : minimum length in characters of the comments, and text to be displayed to visitors of few words. Save the changes and go.
The next visitor to leave a comment with fewer characters than you have defined will see a warning message to be encouraged to discuss something with more substance . The only ones who are saved from this restriction, which we did not get to the code are the editor and administrator, the rest to make or receive a warning.
The question is, is it necessary or interesting thing? , well look, the truth is yes. I've got a mouth to say that the comments are also content, and they need to moderate them for that, being aware of that affect the positioning of our website, its content is related to the subject treated in the content of the input, and with the highest quality possible. If you also control a minimum of "quantity" avoid comments that contribute nothing, and sometimes even penalizing us, such as " Thanks "or" You're a crack , "or the typical" I found your blog and I love to visit the mine . "
