    ACP --> Spam Management

    Set Spam Cleaner User Criteria: Maximum message count: to be larger than the number of posts they have, and run them through the Spam Cleaner?

    Deleting a user won't delete his posts. Running the spam cleaner is the easiest way to accomplish this.

    As many as you need to be able to run it on the user you'd like.

    Did he register within 30 days? Has he received more than 5 likes? If not, all you have to do is adjust the post count to be above what he has. Then you can run the spam cleaner on him.

    I had the exact same spam attack on my forum yesterday, with that exact same user + many more users. I cleaned up the 2000+ threads with the batch thread management. :)

    Then the users with the batch user update thing.
