    This is one of those things that I could probably find and turn off somewhere in the wordpress interface if I wasn't so lazy.

    I have a few e-mail addresses that I don't even WANT to check because all of the legitimate e-mails are buried under thousands of e-mails that wordpress sends to me every time someone makes a comment on my blog (99.9% of which are obviously SPAM!)

    So how and where do I turn off this lame default setting that sends an e-mail every single time a bot comments on my blogs???

    Thanks!

    I am also searching to stop unwanted comments by software's. I got 300 to 500 comments in a day and it is so time consuming to delete permanently.
    Anybody knows the solution??
