I have a friend that is running a popular sports blog that asked me for help with his spam problems. He currently has over 200.000 spam comments.
My first step was to install Aksimet to stop new spam from getting into his DB.
The major problem is to get rid of the spam already in his system. How would I fix that? I have been looking for a plugin to adress this, but that I have found stops only new spam from entering the system.
Aksimet times out when I try to unleash it on the problem. Is there anyone who can help me out?
