We have a situation where a commenter wants us to remove temporarily for now but maybe permenantly his comments on our blog. We understand his request and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this.
One thought is to set the field comment_approved to something like "hidden" via phpAdmin.
As best I can tell valid values for this field now are "0", "1","trash","spam", and "post-trash".
What I'm after is for these comments to vanish from normal operations until we decide to re-instate them or delete them later.
Anyone know if this will cause things to blow up?
FYI we have 77,000+ active comments with this poster having 1977 of them.
