    The good news is that Akismet is catching it all. For that, I’m really appreciative. A lot of them are coming with the same username. Is there a way to just automatically have them deleted rather than having them caught, sit in queue, and then manually deleting them?

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

    Hey there,

    Currently, there’s no way to automagically trash spam posts as soon as they’re detected. There is a bulk-delete action (click the checkbox at the top of the comment list after you’ve switched to the queued view), which is a quick way to knock out a bunch of comments in one go.

    Please let me know if I can be of any further help!

    Best,
    P.

    Same here. Akismet is catching them all but I’ve seen a huge increase in Spam lately. I’m trying to be flattered that the spammers think I’m worth bothering with!

    Hello, isn’t there any german support?

    I’m getting a bulk of messages, much more than expected.
    Is there any way to unsign the “send me a new message for every f*** new answer”?

    Thanks, pcrumm. It just keeps on coming! I kind of like to preview them just in case a legitimate comment is in the midst but at 500 comments every couple of hours, it does get tedious.
