How can I search for and delete all of the bot user registrations? (3 posts)

    I have a wordpress install that I tried to use for internal office communication.
    I installed BB-Press and used it for internal stuff only.

    But over a few months, bots have created hundreds of dummy user accounts. Is there any way to check the users against a blacklists to remove the bots?

    I can see a ton of plugins to prevent a bot from creating a account (captcha , etc..) but how can I filter my user list to delete the bots and keep my good users?


    Any ideas?

    If you know how to manage database you can delete them from wp_signup table by selecting them and delete.

    I know how to delete them, is there a plugin to tell me "who is bad" ?
    I need some way of running a blacklist check against my user list.
