Could we get a "Delete all comments" function on gallery items?

Could we get a "delete all comments" function for gallery items?   The other day I had 202(!), spam comments on my Dr. Deemo figure, and, after manually deleting around 50-75 individual messages, I just said the heck with it, and deleted the gallery item itself, as that was quicker and less work.

It boggles the mind that spambots would decide that a papier mache figure of an obscure character from an early 90s Swamp Thing cartoon/toy line would be a marketing magnet for their junk/scams . . . apparently it was working though, as Dr. Deemo had 5,000+ views when I deleted him.

They're a menace, aren't they! I came across your mammoth spam posting the other day. I was just about to delete them when I realised that it was going to take longer than the time I was prepared to devote to it at the time. I went back to it when I had a spare half hour and saw that you had deleted the figure. I was going to suggest you doing that, and maybe re posting it to your gallery, which would of course have a different url.

Fancy your figure getting 5,000 hits! One (and the only one) good thing that comes from spam.

Russ has been looking into this problem. Will keep you posted.

Was all that spam coming from the same source?  Does the spam show the source?  It's a pity that we can't fire something back that blows up their computer.

Vindictive?  Me?  Yes, so what's your point?

My thoughts entirely Sue!

Same source.....but many different email addresses - they are so cunning.
