How to stop damaging e-mails in awaiting comment section (4 posts)

    I apologize for not knowing more about programming but people are sending me hundreds of sex- and gambling-oriented e-mails with buried code each day. I have 1.5.2, which does allow me to do a mass select, but I have to go through all of them to find any that might be good. How can I filter these by words, etc. Thanks.

    Install this:

    and this:

    they will take care of future rubbish.

    Then install Spam Nuker:

    and that will remoce all the crap in the database too :)

    That should be easily done in the admin panel under options - discussion.

    Thank you so much for the help. I'll get back with any questions as I work to execute what you've outlined.
