    I have an inactive board that I used for testing purposes only a few months back. I now want to start really learning XF and possibly use it for a new community.

    However, over the last few months, I've received about 1,300 spam posts from about 110 spambots.


    1) Is there a way to mass delete the posts?

    2) Is there a way to mass delete the spambots?

    I tried using the spam cleaner...good tool...but not for mass cleaning, it'd take a very long time.

    I looked in the List Users area, and going through and banning each one of them 1 at a time likewise, would take a very long time. There are 195 spambots, 113 got through the human verification system. I'll work on strengthening that of course...but now I have some damage control to do.

    What is the best way to do this?
