Removing Akismet Records From PostMeta?
I have BuddyPress/bbPress installed on a secondary site of a Multi-Site installation. The bbPress portion took of the site took off about a month ago, but the wp_postmeta database for the boards has already swelled to over 30mb in size with 63,000 rows and occasionally affects performance of the site.
In looking through the database I see thousands of the entries are from Akismet records. Are meta key’s such as _bbp_akismet_as_submitted, _bbp_akismet_history, and _bbp_akismet_result necessary to retain in wp_postmeta in order for Akismet to continue to block spam? Will removing them simply result in Akismet re-adding them on a future scan?
