Subject: Batch remove bot users
I have over 5k users that are registered, only 3 of them are "real" people. I am getting very tired of having to manually click through all the bot sign ups and remove them one page at a time (I have to click every single check box).

I would appreciate a way to remove old users that have never posted, in batches. I am open to other ideas on how to get rid of the bot users, I have no idea why they are there, none of them ever post anything. But when users want to find eachother, the user page is impossible to look through.

The first thing you should do is install the captcha plugin.  This will keep the bots away.  Then create a new users.auth.php with your 3 real users and replace the old.
