How do I mass delete spam (>19K)

  • retag add tags

I have more than 19000 spam messages. I could delete 50 at a time, but I have to imagine there is a faster way.

Are these spam posts (questions, answers, comments) or spam profiles? I have been deleting thousands of spam profiles one by one on Ask Sage. Thousands of spam profiles would also need to be removed from Ask Askbot, see - [Ask Askbot profiles, newest first]( Cleaning up spam profiles one by one makes you long for - improved spam profile detection - easier mass blocking of spam profiles It would also be nice to be able to federate the efforts across Askbot-powered websites.
