While I have been neglecting my blog, others have not.
I see that one of my posts (Predestination) has garnered over 64,000 comments!
I can’t check all of them, of course, but I’m pretty sure they are all spam.
Some of my posts permit comments, while others do not. I’m not sure why, TBH.
Now I could do a series of “Move to Bin” operations but that would take forever to do by hand. So I did it from the database using this:
DELETE FROM `wp_comments` where `comment_post_ID` = 84
I could have done something with the wp_commentmeta table too but there were only a small number of rows there so I didn’t bother.
I also disabled comments for the post.
