    I woke up this morning to find 130k+ posts on my demo board!

    I had all the bot registration mods, and secret questions enabled and somehow this happened, but I have disabled my forum for the time being.

    What is the fastest way to clean these spam posts? in vBulletin4 I can select a user and then ban and delete all his posts, but I am not seeing anything like this in XenForo?

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Well, you can use the spam cleaner on individual members, but that probably won't handle the data correctly.

    However, as they posted new threads, you can use the batch update threads tool to clear them out.
