Greetings.

One day, I let my guard down. Kind of abandoned a board idea that didn't go so well. Long story short: I just returned to the neighborhood and found it polluted and run over with fake alien members writing spam messages. I apparently left the settings so that anyone could join without my approval. Reminds me of a movie I saw with Will Smith -- something about New York being taken over by aliens or something?

Anyway, how can I mass delete about 1,000 or so members? I've already killed the messages by canning the board topics. Just threw everything in the trash. All that's left is one topic with 6 or so real messages. The board is locked down (memberships off, moderation required). I just need to clean out the fake members. Is there a file somewhere under the hood? I figure, there's got to be a file somewhere with all the usernames. Where might that be?

As always, much thanks.
