This is how you moderate comments with WordPress this far: First you receive an email from WordPress notifying about a new comment (whoohoo!) Eagerly, you click the “Approve it” link. A new tab opens with a form asking you to log into the administrator area. You input the username and that long long password, click “Log Me In.” There, you are welcomed with a silly “Are you sure?” confirmation message and two buttons: “Yes I’m sooooo sure” and “No I’m not sure at all, my $200 mouse was just malfunctioning.”
Ever felt that it’s a little too much? Well, if you are that lazy (just like I am), then Lazy Moderator is just for you! Now the notification email will be appended with real “one-click” links to help you moderate the comment with just, well, one click. Yes, one click and it’s done. No login. No confirmation. No hassles. No shit.

- Is this plugin secure? I mean, I don’t even have to log in to moderate comments? How is this possible?
Well, this depends on how “secure” you want it to be. Each moderation action is associated with a unique, random, irreversible 40-character long string (called “token”). As a blog owner/author, you have these tokens attached in the moderation links, ready for you to use. Now, in order to moderate the comments like you do, another person must make a guess. If he’s lucky enough to guess a 40-character long string perfectly and successfully hacks into your system, DON’T SUE HIM! Instead, make friends with him and ask him to buy you some lottery tickets.
- What’s that with all the drawings after moderation?
Most of them are rage comics. I like them a lot, so I decided to use them for some personality.
