Spam comments

  1. Where do I find the akismet spam folder to find comments they are deleting? they are removing spam because of the number of links but not using the awaiting moderation option,
    so I have no idea what they have removed or when.
    Is it my privacy settings? all I want to do is see what is in the folder - if I could find it.
    Possibly a rt click on the akismet green stats could bring up a list, that is what I expected to happen, there were only 4 or five.

    The blog I need help with is joy50tee.wordpress.com.

  2. See > http://en.support.wordpress.com/unwanted-comments/

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam.

    The worst of all spam containing malware and viruses is not sent to us. It's removed as it could bring down many blogs if opened.

    On the spam that Akismet catches it takes only seconds to click "empty spam" and you don't even have to click "empty spam" if you don't want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it's spam.

    There is no such thing as eliminating all spam but Akismet works very well. For more information please take the time to read "5 things every blogger should know about spam" on this page Akismet: How it works http://akismet.com/how/

    Where do I find that file/folder to peruse the contents?

  4. Go to Dashboard > Comments
    on the top of the page you see
    All | Pending | Approved | Spam | Trash

    Click the "spam" link.

  5. Thanks
