DELETE * FROM `font_comment` WHERE `status`=`pending`

Hello. Excuse me, please, idiot here.

I am trying to figure out how to delete the spam out of my comments. For some reason, the Russians post a lot of crap no one ever sees.

I need to run a command (SQL tab of phpadmin) to delete any entry from the table "font_comment" that has a "status" of "pending".

That will delete over 6000 entries/(rows?).

I know this is wrong:

DELETE * FROM `font_comment` WHERE `status`=`pending`

I can delete them from the CMS, but only one at a time.

I don't apologize for looking foolish, I rarely use MySQL or phpAdmin other than backup, import and export. But knowing this will allow me to avoid a great deal of work and headache.

Thanks in advance for your help. I did look in the manual, but all the quotes seem to be different, and there are so many uneeded arguments in the syntax, I just need to qualify the delete and do it.

Database is backed up, no worries there.
