My client approved a comment in WordPress that she shouldn't have. I cannot for the life of me find a way to get rid of the approved comment, and it appears that there really isn't a way.

I can sort the approved comments, but nowhere is there a checkbox by a specific comment to delete, unaprove, edit, spam or access/modify the comment in any way.

Does anyone have a workaround for this? As you can see by the screenshot, I can narrow down the list to just the one comment, but that is it.

Checking the boxes and using the drop-down menu doesn't actually affect the comment.

See that bulk actions dropdown in lower left? Choose your action there and then click Apply

We finally figured this out. The comments that could not be deleted were imported with posts/comments from a blogger site. These comments were not attached/related to any posts though. So they had to be hand-edited out of the database.
