    Hi!

    I think this feature is very important. I know you already have it in your wishlist. I was needing this to delete all that was created by the user "demo" I created when i import the demo content of my new theme.

    Thanks! :D

    Do you want to have this feature as a separate section, where you can delete posts from a user or you want to this to be a filter inside existing sections like delete by category or tags?

    I think is better as the existing filters. one of the major uses would be to delete "demo" content.

    I revised the plugin to perform deletes by userid. You can enter an ID and it will delete that user's posts. I needed this feature myself and so I modified the plugin. You can copy/paste the code in the 'wp-mass-delete.php' file. I'm sure there is a better way to contribute this but I don't have time right now
