No filters work with my WP and you dont have to show all 16k users on the confirmation page. As well would be cool to delete all 16k at once, but the plugin cant delete more than 2.8k at once... But thx, took me just 10 mins to remove 16k.

The Inactive User Deleter plugin for WordPress helped me purge the userlist of one of my websites. I was able to weed out the spammers and clean up my database at the same time. Thank you very much! A note to those who plan to download it: please read and understand the options carefully. In the options, "AND" is different from "OR" -- AND means all situations should be present, or means one of these situations. If you're looking to save users with published posts or approved comments, it would help to sort the list based on posts or comments to the users listed according to the number of posts or comments they made.

This plugin is working and it is very good at what it does. It has also just been updated by the author. I initially wrote a negative review as it appeared not to work on my website, however, I soon found out that this was down to my user error. When the user selects delete, the page refreshes and this is where the user can easily miss the second CONFIRM DELETION WARNING. If this second warning is not seen and not confirmed, then no users will be deleted. This plugin is perfect for analysing poss and comment activity and identifying zombie accounts. In my case It did not detect posts or comments made other forum plugins but I suspect this is because this data is not stored in the native WP database. All in all it's a great tool and one of the only wordpress plugins currently available with this functionality. My thanks to the Author.
