Check box & delete selected for form responses in the dashboard?

Would having a check box show with each form response (in the dashboard) and the option to 'delete selected' be a viable concept?

I have a built number of Perch sites that receive a fair bit of spam from their contact forms, even with an Akismet key, and it would be nice if the client (or myself), could delete the unwanted in batches, rather than painstakingly having to do it one at a time.

It would be viable, certainly.

We are experiencing the same issues with a few of our clients as well. Is this an option that is planned to be added in the near future?

If there's demand we can certainly take a look at it.

Have you verified that your Akismet configuration is working?

Yes or Akismet is working correctly, and it's great.

Occasionally a valid email is put in the spam folder. The spam folder gets a TON of spam email, and for a person to go through the spam and try to clear it out so they don't miss any valid ones, it's tedious to delete one at a time. Having the ability to use check boxes to remove all the ones listed on a page at one time would be highly appreciated.
