Sorry if this has been asked before, I trie to look for a similar problem with no luck, so I dunno...
I'm currently running 1.5b1 2005-01-21 and I've noticed a distinct lack of spam comments, until I noticed the wp-comments table in the database, it's completely bloated with comments marked as spam, but not appearing in the awaiting moderation queue
a recent example
wp_comments VALUES (4892, 13, 'online poker', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'http://www.example.com/', '22.214.171.124', '2005-02-03 12:38:17', '2005-02-03 17:38:17', 'Please visit some information in the field of 'http://www.example.com/' online poker\r\n...', 0, 'spam', 0, 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)', '', 0);
is this a known error? should I enter it in mosquito? should I upgrade to a newer build?
