    I have over 40,000 spam comments and I don't know how to remove them in bulk. Currently I am only allowed to delete 20 at a time. Also how to prevent this from happening again? Please help, Candi.

    No this just deletes them to stop spam comments you will want to add some security and check the keyword comment spam in the plugin repository to get a good spam plugin.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Get Akismet, they should be marked spam, either by Akismet ot you.

    After that...don't let it get to 40,000 again.
