WordPress-to-WordPress Import Tip: Delete Spam Comments First

I’m doing some blog consolidation (“finally”, I can hear you say). I’ve been trying out WordPress’ new import feature.

It hung, stalled, or timed out every time, either on initial import or on Step 2 when I assign the post author.

After peaking into the WXRSS file, I noticed all my comments were in there (yeah!) including the spam (booo!). After I deleted the spam, re-exported, and re-imported, everything worked slick as can be.
