Comments on WordPress blog

Mar 27, 2013 by DinoGuy
Hi there
I have over 2000 comments that are totally irrelevant to my content. I guess this is spamming. How can I filter the comments, mass delete them and how do I turn the commenting function off? I am using WordPress 3.1.5
I would appreciate any advice

Yes this is spamming.Try using Akismet plugin or any other anti-spam plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cookies-for-comments/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/spam-destroyer/

try this http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-remove-thousads-of-approved-spam-comments?replies=10#post-2726817 this plugin will delete all the approved comments on your site.. so if you want to filter them first don’t use it.
