    Hi Guys,

    I am facing the problem due to the spammer or spam comments on my website http://www.clickbysearch.com/blog/ so is there any way to delete thousands of spam comments at once?

    While in the Dashboard, go to Screen Options in Comments and select a few hundred comments to display at a time, or just hit "Empty Spam."

    OR You can try run the following sql query in phpmyadmin. Remember to backup your database first. DELETE FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_approved = 'spam'
