Doc Pop’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you.

Ian Dunn has created a new WordPress plugin that uses neural networks to help identify “toxic” comments. If a comment scores poorly, a message will pop-up suggesting that the comment’s author consider changing their wording to be less toxic.

You can download and install the Compassionate Comments plugin from the repository here.

Doctor Popular is an artist and musician living in San Francisco. As a full disclaimer, he is neither a doctor nor popular.
