Deleting large number of spams
I neglected my site, and now I’ve 15,000 spams in the moderation. It’s so big that the moderation page won’t even load.
How in the world do I get rid of these? In the old version of WordPress, the Mass Edit mode helped me handle this. I could search for a common spam word, which would load a few hundred comments. At that pace, I could wipe out the spam pretty quickly.
From what I can tell, that doesn’t work with 2.2. The mass edit mode will only load 20 comments to a page. Deleting 15,000 in group of 20 will take forever.
