    marking a comment as spam doesnt delete it.

    deleted comments are NOT recoverable.

    .. so you need to clarify which is the case above.

    I get e-mails with every comment. If I were to delete one, by accident, I could recreate it by copying and pasting the info out of my e-mail.

    as yes, forgot about the emails. thanks a lot.


    I need to undelete a comment as well. I’m surprised that new and unapproved or reviewed comments are housed in the same place as previously approved comments. This is a design flaw. I was mass deleting spam comments and accidentally deleted legitimate comments. Now I can’t recover these comments and can’t locate the email trail since these commments were approved many months ago. Also, I editing the approved comments as well. Seems to me that you either need an undelete feature or you need a better mechanism for seperating new spam comments from previously approved comments. Not a happy camper since I lost my legitimate comments. JT (

    Ok, so where does one go to “un-spam” a comment that was accidentally marked, if the email was already deleted? Where is the database?
