how to disable reviews. Just spam, it even blocked my site

How do I disable the reviews function? My website went unavailable and the cause was the "discussion" database table being too big because of spam.
How do I completely remove the function in Webasyst Shop script?

    Execute this SQL query in your database:

    UPDATE `SC_divisions` set `xUnicKey` = CONCAT('discuss_product_', FLOOR(RAND()*1000000)) WHERE `xUnicKey` = 'discuss_product';

    This will add a randomly generated number to the URL to which new discussion messages must be posted. Since no one except from you will know that modified URL (after you execute the query), there should be no further spam posts in your store any more.

    Would this work on the old Shop-Script PREMIUM or the latest v5

      No, it will not, because they have different database structure.
