i have a wordpress site that has more than 3000 pending and 0 spam comments. i want to identify and delete only spams. there are ways to delete all pending but i want to first identify spams and then delte them. There was no spam guard plugin earlier. I have just installed akismet. using wordpress 3.2. Please guide me.

I have the same issue. The idea is to re-evaluate all existing comments in batch, and marking them as spam or not, using like, the Akismet plugin installed. – Mandx Aug 3 '12 at 1:25
