Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Fast and Efficient WordPress Spam Clearing

If you’re using WordPress most likely you get some spam comments caught by Akismet the infamous spam filter plugin. Sometimes I get a lot of spam and would hate to just go through the whole thing, mostly I could just identify spam by one look! Therefore, I’ve come up with a way to clean spam quickly and efficiently.

I use Firefox but you could do this using other browsers as well. You’ll notice at the end of each spam comment there is a checkbox with “not spam” next to it.

What I do is, I use firefox search for the words “not spam” and it automatically takes me to the end of the first spam entry. With one look I can see if it is spam or not, then I keep my finger on the CTRL button (Command button if you’re on a mac) and press “G” to go to the next item found. This way by pressing “CTRL”/”Command”+G repeatedly I can cycle through the spam comments much faster. If I see a comment which should not be there, I simple tick the check mark and keep going!

Reserved, going to add something here later.
