I deleted 355 spam users who had spam in their profile and zero posts.

I also accidentally deleted one real user, but he had zero posts, a myspace link in his profile, and only visited once in 2009. Ten_Bucks registered on 12-04-2009 and never visited again. Sorry, Ten_Bucks!

Please assist me in finding more spammers.

Once I think we're sufficiently clean, I'm going to restructure user permissions to prevent spamming and re-open registration. It's been closed for a while now...

I changed everybody's usergroup and fakked around with permissions. Let me know if anything's broken.

If you're trying to help me find spammers, look for spam in visitor messages, picture album comments, calendar events, social group messages, etc.

I think I've cleared visitor messages. There was one spammer in there who I hadn't deleted, and 3 posts by a spammer that I did delete. Now I gotta find a way to view all photo album comments...

Found it.

Dare I say we are spam-free?

Enabled new user registration. New users must be approved by moderator before they can login.

Well, shit. Can't find new user moderation approval page, and it's bedtime. I'll continue tomorrow.

Oh lawd is a pro spammer with authentic spam link and admin-fooling name. Me and cao/testeuser1 will never figure it out.
