Well.. the spam bots had started to pile up pretty high, so I ran a simple mysql query to delete all users from the forums with 0 posts. Killed a lot of users...

If you happened to not have any posts, I'm sorry, please make a new account, and post on the forums!

The bots are our friends :(

Mine are well-behaved anyway. I gave them their own subforum and they actually post there on their own. Very considerate of them.

I do understand--I'm just giving you shit :P

If you need, I can tell you which users that have posts are bots; there are four of them.

Very nice to see it cleaned up, even though it would need another cleanup from time to time.

trying a new mod to try to keep bots out, and deleted a couple more. Sure is a lot more elbow room without all these bots about.

Indeed it does. Fingers crossed it continues to do so. Although it does seem a little quieter without the bots. Maybe it's just me.
