I have upwards of 2k comments showing as 'pending approval' in my comments area. When I sort them by type, they look to be all 'pings.'
What is most odd is I cannot find where these pings exist in the actual wordpress db. They simply do not show in the wp_comments table.
I'm looking for a way to mass erase these pings, which I would normally do on the db level - but since I can't find them, that is making life a bit difficult!
Any thoughts on where the pings are stored and how to delete them in one quick action?
