Split up the "Bypass word and link filters?" group-level setting

Recommended Posts

Please consider splitting the "Bypass word and link filters?" group-level setting (it's under Content > Moderation when viewing a group's settings in the ACP) into two separate settings for bypassing the word and link filters. This is the one:

Could contain: Page, Text

"Bad words" and "bad links" are conceptually different in how they can harm a community so coupling them together in this setting seems weird, to say the least, and is limiting.

In my site's case, I'm using the link filter as a spam control measure for new users until they "graduate" to a more privileged group but wish to enforce the word filter across all groups. I was dismayed to learn that this is impossible - enabling the link filter for new users meant giving up the seemingly unrelated word filter for everyone else.
