I’ve recently been under attack by a lot of spammers, and have been a little worried that my spam filters may have been a little overzealous in blocking comments and trackbacks. I’ve been looking at Akismet‘s page of caught spam to make sure nothing got through.
However, finding that one comment that got lost has proven difficult among the mess of hundreds of trackback spam has proven tricky. Thus, I wrote a plugin, called “See Spam,” based on Akismet and Spam Nuker that provides separate views for All Spam, Comment Spam, Trackback Spam, and Pingback Spam. Each view provides the ability to batch delete all comments or unspam individual comments.
