I’ve just spent an hour or more deleting spammy comments from my web pages. One of the vagaries of WordPress I’m yet to get to grips with are the random ticks or crosses required to avoid unwelcome comments. The next thing is each time I tried to bulk delete the system told me that the bulk action was too large.
There is probably a plugin to assist with all this but the very action of deleting and then emptying the trash is quite satisfying.
My mind began to wander and as I read some of the comments I couldn’t gather what these expected to achieve other than a pingback of some sort.
I am sure that within the thousands of spammy comments there will be some that were genuine but these have also been deleted with the rest.
So the new year starts with a clean website and a long to do list of information and articles I plan to add.
Here’s to 2015
