    I have 2,200 SPAM POSTS waiting for me to approve or disapprove, and I'm tired of receiving them, I want to shut down my WordPress blog forever! Please tell me how to do it. Thanks!

    Thanks, Samboll. Are there any tools to get rid of 2200 waiting comments in one fell swoop? Or would I just delete this blogsite and start another. And HOW DO YOU PLUG IN THE PLUG-INS? Someone told me about them, but I didn't know how to do it! Thanks again.

    If you want to delete the spam through your database using phpmyadmin

    Delete from comments where comment_approved = 'spam';

    The Akismet plugin comes with WordPress and can be activated easily enough. Visit your plugin menu.

    edit - Ahh I see sambol has posted a video of what I typed above..

    You could also start using wp captcha free to prevent bots
