I got a bit behind on my anti-spam stuff, and a lot of spam built up on my forum. I have several users with 15,000 - 16,000 spam posts. When I try to run the spam cleaner on them I just get a "The server did not respond in time. Please try again." error. It's a decently beefy server, but I guess it just can't handle trying to delete that many posts at once. What are my options here? I'm comfortable going into phpmyadmin and running a query directly if someone has the query that will kill all trace of the user, their posts, their new topics, their messages, etc. Or is there some way to get the spam cleaner to work on them? Secondly, when I run the spam cleaner on smaller users with the "permanently delete" option selected, why do I still see a copy of the deleted thread (only I can see it, as admin)? I understand that it stays there with a soft delete, but with a hard delete shouldn't it be gone?
