My SQL database is getting large. I looked and saw there are 150 pages (at 30 lines per page) of commentmeta data, which reference akismet history, as in "admin changed the comment status to delete"
Is there a plugin or other simple tool to clean this up? I tried removing Akismet for a while to try to delete the extra data, but it stayed. The advise I've seen so far suggests things beyond my ability. I can delete manually, but that would take quite a while.
Curious why this is accumulating.
