    Suggestions? So far the only hack that I've seen was Chris J. Davis' Easy Mass Delete, but that doesn't work with this build.

    I'm at my wit's end here, any help is appreciated. I already have implimented plenty to stop it in the future, but I still have 17 megs of unwanted junk.

    Good grief !
    What spam protection did you have ??

    Are there comments of value in the database ? If so, how many ? Is it really 20K ? You will need an SQL query, so can these rogue coments be nailed to certain date / timespan ??

    Wow, I didn't realise that WP was this prone - makes me slighlty concerned myself. I don't particularly want to go through your process!

    Have you tried kitten's spaminator, spamwords and spam karma plugins? They're supposed to control spam (I dont' know if they actually do). There is a plugin that can delete mass comments - but you'll have to do a serch for spam plugin or visit the WP Plugin Repository which is where you will find the plugin.
