    Thank you in advance for any help.

    How can I delete unwanted posts/responses on my home page of theme "Twenty Ten"? And how do I prevent false responses in the future? Here is the site:

    Looks like your site is actually using Pilcrow theme?

    Are you asking about SPAM comments? IF so, are you using any anti-spam plugins like Akismet?

    Oh thanks. It was there, but I had not activated it!

    I am now noticing that there are POSTS on the home page. Is there a way to get rid of those? I'm not seeing any easy methods to do this on the forums.

    THank you!

    Your home page can be set to post or to a static page - see:

    If you just don't want comments to show - go to the Posts screen and hover over that post's title - click on QuickEdit and then turn off comments for that post.

    For additional help, please start a new thread in the theme's own forum:

    Thank you. I'll go to that forum. Can I ask you what this means:

    Request-URI Too Large

    I get this error message when I type in "999" on drop down box on COMMENTS page, where I choose "mark as spam".

    Thanks again.

    I'd guess that you can't display that many comments - see if a plugin will help you delete all of those:
