Re: How to Remove Deleted Posts and Bozo Posts from Database?
@grassrootspa – I’m not sure why they did it that way… I guess so that you could restore the post if you wanted. WordPress doesn’t have a comments trash – if you delete a comment, the comment is gone. I think blog posts work the same way too.
So I guess the two systems work somewhat differently? That’s not the only difference either – WordPress also has a “moderated comments” layer in addition to the Akismet Spam layer, but bbPress only has the Akismet Spam layer. Dunno why bbPress doesn’t have a moderated layer either… maybe because bbPress doesn’t (yet) easily enable anonymous comments, so spam isn’t as huge a problem as it is in WordPress.
