WordpressFilter: Haven't blogged in about three months, and am considering a return at the same URL, but don't want to inherit all my old spam comments. Would deleting the Wordpress installation at that address then re-installing it essentially reset the spam, allowing me to better control it this time?

Is there some easier way to delete this than going into each post and individually deleting the spam comments?
Using Typepad, how do I make it so the comments "Pop Up" as opposed to taking the reader to a new page?
