Changes in the logic for the spam_check API

We plan to launch API logic changes for the method “spam_check“. Parameter Appears will be modified.

Parameter Appears — shows presence of record in the CleanTalk Blacklist Database.

How it works right now — “appears”:1 returns in cases when spam activity was registered 3 and more times no matter when it happened even if this activity was a year or more back. It raised questions from our clients: why the method returns 1 when the CleanTalk website shows “Not in list” status?

How it will be — “appears”:1 will be displayed only when a record has “blacklisted” status in the CleanTalk Blacklist Database, and will match its status on the website. If it is necessary for you to get information as it was before, that is based on the parameter “frequency” = 3 and higher, it still shows spam activity independently from time.

Changes will be launched on Nov 6, 2017.

If you have any questions then, please, contact us and we will gladly assist you.
