The {AntiSpam}{Options} and {AntiSpam}{Clean} settings are a measure to protect public sites from spam by adding a rel="nofollow" meta tag.

This is duplicating the functionality of the BlackListPlugin. The Plugin can do more intelligent time based actions: Always on, off, or on for X hours (to give owners time to clean up). The Plugin offers other much more effective anti-spam measures.

Responsible admins of public TWiki sites will install the BlackListPlugin, so there is no need to have this functionality in the core.

BlackListPlugin is a nice plugin and has saved me hours of work per week. It should perhaps be part of the standard set of plugins that ships with the distribution (default disabled).

But perhaps I may be allowed to remind you that currently this is the only of the plugins I use that uses a deprecated handler: endRenderingHandler. If this plugin is going to be one of the "blessed" recommended plugins I would think it would be better if it was up2date on the use of the API. (I looked at solving it myself but that was above my current skill level).

Agreed we should remove the AntiSpam options. I'm always in favour of lightening the core. I do not agree with shipping BlackListPlugin by default - it is only used by public sites, and the release package is already too big.
