Comment Cleanup and Database Errors

By Kshitij Sharma, March 2, 2008

For all those running a WordPress blog, please note – do not mark any spam comment as “spam” while moderation. Just delete it. If you don’t, it will just sit there in the wp_comments table. The performance of your WordPress installation will go down as the size of this table increases.

Why am I ranting about WordPress installation and size of a table instead of writing a post on Astrology? This is because of spam comments, which I realize are almost 80% of all the comments that I receive. I had to undertake a massive cleanup exercise and while I have taken all precautions, I am afraid I might have deleted some genuine comments. If it was one of yours, I apologize.

In the past one week, how many of you have seen the following error message on the blog?

Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) WordPress Error Message

I believe that things should be fine now, but if they are not, please let me know by dropping a line.

    Problem persists. Especially while going to earlier pages. Plus it is erratic, sometimes it transitions pages easily and sometimes it doesn’t. Same message as the one in image.

    I keep coming back to your site for various notes, etc. because of its honesty, and clarity. Only I do not know if your services are available for consultation when there is a dire need to consult someone like you – either free or for fee.

    For instance, I urgently need to know from someone like you or some authoritative source that for a second marriage, is there a need to match the charts.
    I have my son who is 32, good looking, well employed, but lost his daughter and wife one after the other in a period of 6 months. The marriage lasted two and half years. He has 7th mars in Gemini, and I am sure the astro who matched the charts did a very poor job for a variety of reasons. Too late. But have to carry forward. Want to consult about mars dosha, matching need, marriage time, etc. and if he could get a girl – for her first or second marriage??

    Could you please help,, if not, any one else please!
