A quick feature request, would it be feasible to add a ‘purge spam comments’ in the admin panel for the next release of WP? I’d been noticing a rapid decrease in performance of my WP blog lately and wanted to blame my host, but instead found the problem…. 12K+ comments were marked as spam, after deleting these rows performance shot back to normal, since now it only has to parse a few hundred rows instead of thousands the latency is almost nill.
I’ve posted a quick query that most should be able to run against their database to purge the spam comments and speed things up
