    I recently converted from vbulletin to xenforum (very happy about that), and I have I would estimate 75,000 members that I need to delete who have 0 posts, and joined the old vbulletin for the purpose of spamming the profile page or similar. Is there a clean way to purge these from the database?

    Be very careful with using it. I tried that before and deleted some that I shouldn't have. It does not have advanced filtering system so you may end up deleting the good users as well.
    I wish it shows you a preview of usernames before you delete.

    I've seen it delete someone with 1 post, who I wanted to specifically keep.

    It was done on a dev server as a test, but it spooked me away from using it live. ;)
