What is the difference between Spam and Trash

Why to use Spam comment moderation option in wordpress: If we use “Spam” Comment moderation option and we have “akismat” plugin installed on wordpress then it will use that comment to learn what to mark as an “Spam”.

Why to use Trash comment moderation option in wordpress: Trashed comment gets deleted automatically after a certain time period. Its depends on the setting available in wp-config.php file.

How to manage after how many days Trash comment will get deleted:

There is a constant that can be set under wp-config.php file:

define(‘EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS’, 30);

It means trashed comment will be deleted after each 30 days.
