Deleting a thousand spam users

There are nearly 1000 spam user accounts registered on my forum! How do I delete them all?

I would be happy simply to delete all accounts with no posts.

To do this manually would take several hours.

  • Hi Joe, I saw 920 total accounts on your site. I deleted nearly 350 as spammers. Let us know if that caught most of what you were seeing.

    Were Akismet and Stop Forum Spam not catching them effectively, or did you just recently enable them?

  • Thanks.

    I enabled those plugins a while back and that slowed (though not stopped) the spam registrations. Changing the registration mode to 'Approval' has stopped them completely, but unfortunately it also disabled the CAPTCHA which is causing the problems described in my other message.
