Braaaaaaains! Does the job.

Cleaned up a mass of "zombie users" quickly and easily. It's a powerful tool but provides the right warnings and allows a test mode, so if you're smart enough to have a backup, there should be no concerns.

Thanks for cleaning up that mess for me!

Works great!

Fair bit of noobness in my WP skillz and even though I build a kickarse site, I had absolutely no clue at first about all these random signups I was getting. After a few weeks I accumulated 12k spam users!
With no where to turn, Zombie Killers came to my rescue. With it I was able to clear about half. The other half I had to do manually.

Feature request: The reason I was only able to clear half with the plugin is because there is no option for "None" as a role. Zombie cleaned all my spam Subscribers, but didn't have an option for the None role.

Overall, an easy process, and only this one small complaint.

Muchas gracias!

Excellent plug-in that takes care of dead spam accounts in one big swoop. I always do as the plugin tells me and perform a backup. I also triple check that all the users I'm deleting are actual Zombies.

Thank you for making this plug-in.

Works like a charm.

Easy to use and does what it claims to do.

Made a backup of the DB first, just in case.

Ran deletes in batches of 500, and 1 last hurrah of 1016.

Went from nearly 4000 accounts to a lean 40.

Nice and easy

I've just used this plugin on a live site which gets lots of spam user account registrations.

The plugin allows you to do a 'dry run' so you can see the user accounts it has identified as spam and run some manual spot checks to make sure there are no false positives.

After that, rerun the check and delete them for real.

A great time-saver. Props to the author.
