Too Much Spam to Delete (3 posts)

    I stopped writing in my blog for a long time and a bunch of spam has accumulated since then. The problem is that now there is too much to delete. The page stops loading at around 9000. Is there any other way that I can easily delete all the spam comments besides deleting all comments? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Get the plugin Akismet out of your plugins.

    You'll then need an API key to further emply it.

    This should be available when you activate out of plugin's or your host may be able to help you.

    So far this year I have blocked over 30,000 spam.

    That's BS...
    The API key for Akismet can be obtained ONLY in one place - by signing up at the wordpress.COM site.
