Akismet doesn't limit how many comments it processes at once. (2 posts)

    We've found that when using the plugin to process large amounts of comments with the "Check for Spam" button at the top of the comment listing pages.

    Currently it doesn't limit at all the number of comments it processes, this causes one environment we work with to timeout becuase there are ~ 700+ unapproved comments.

    I've provided a patch here


    This patch moves the "Check for Spam" operation to be a recursive paginated ajax call that will cycle through the comments 100 at a time and then reload the page when complete.

    I'd love smaller batch processing to be available in Akismet. I'm dealing with a site right now that is hanging on "check for spam" due to the number of comments to go through. The issue is that some are legit.

    It would be awesome if O could save some of the client's real comments.
