Mass removing of users from OJS database?

Postby michael_clj » Wed Sep 05, 2012 8:08 am

Greetings --

We're having a problem in that we have many spam users enrolled -- about 15,000 -- and have already identified Captcha as a solution, but is there a way to delete the thousands of already-subscribed spam accounts? We would like to get rid of them, even if it means having to re-enter legitimate readers and editors.

Thanks in advance --
