What are WordPress spam comments and how to clean them?

A wordpress spam comment is a comment that you (or a plugin like akismet) have marked as a spam.
You can either use our plugin Advanced Database Cleaner to clean-up these spam comments, or execute the following sql code (which is used by the plugin) directly via your phpMyAdmin:

DELETE FROM comments WHERE comment_approved = ‘spam’
