    Hello,
    I have a problem with WordPress comment blacklist.
    When I download backup (through edit -> export) of my blog in xml file, I see all the spam messages in there. Because of that the backup file is 67 MB (I have only 190 posts and 570 comments). There are thousands of spam messages. And I can't delete it automatically, only manually (through Notepad by selecting and deleting). How can I delete them? I can't see those spam messages through WordPress Control Panel.

    You can empty the database table associated with the spam.
