Users with 0 posts since 2010

To try and get on top of this "fake user" business, all users with zero posts to the forum who joined after 1 January 2010 are now "deleted".
If this affects you, my apologies - please feel free to re-join and introduce yourself on the forum.

Agreed Andrew...

I did make a start on this some years ago, I made a start but something came along and I had to quit the process.

It's easy to do as a one-step process under "prune users"
You just select "AFTER" and then the date, and POST COUNT with 0
it gives you a list and you just hit confirm.

I have "disabled" these users just to see how it goes. you can also "delete".

But certainly, don't step through by hand and do it!!!

Oh OK, I wasn't aware of that tool. If need be I'll try it in the future...
