I'd say that the comment moderation page should have paginated results. Say 25 or 50 comments at a time. That would be less load on the database & wouldn't result in Server timing out. Also a link/button to delete all comments in moderation would be good, just as a last resort/panic button, so that if you have 1000 comments in moderation, you can delete them all, even if it costs 2-3 legit comments. :)

I just got hit with a huge batch of spam comments. Not only were there 
a lot of 
them, but they contain DOZENS of links as well as text.

I can't moderate them because my server keeps timing out. I know that I 
can go 
into phpMyAdmin and delete them manually, but that doesn't help people 
who don't 
have this or have the "courage" to do something like directly edit the 

I'm wondering if comments could be changed in how they are listed in 
the comment 
moderation panel? I'd like to see a simple list of just the basic 
and not the body of the comment. The comment body could be replaced by 
a link to 
show the entire contents of the comment if desired.

Would this method cut down on the dbase query execution time? If this 
would be a 
worthwhile thing to do, could someone take a stab at the coding? 
Please? :)
