I've seen this posted about elsewhere but haven't yet found one marked resolved. If there's just no way to efficiently clean up Feedback spam then please consider this a feature request.
I had a feedback form on a blog, and thought it was attracting little attention from anyone - legit or not. However, over the last week or two I began receiving e-mail notifications of submissions to the form - maybe about six or seven - and they were clearly spam. I logged in today to just remove the form and saw that those few submissions I'd been notified of were the tip of the iceberg - Akismet had caught around 85,000 in the spam filter. God bless Akismet, but - holy cow!
While I'm grateful that I did not receive an e-mail notification for all of those spam submissions, there doesn't seem to be any way to bulk delete them as I can when I empty the trash. Since the spam feedbacks date from July I'm assuming that they don't just automatically get deleted after a while. I'd like to remove them but I am not going to waste the time or incur the repetitive stress injuries that would surely result if I were to go through each page of spam.
Thanks in advance for any help.
