Deleting All Users / Security and Spam

edited May 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I have just exported our forum for phpBB and imported everything into Vanilla. I am still on the free account, and we cannot afford to the highest subscription on the hosted side. We ran phpBB on our own server, but it was an absolute nightmare, not to mention, impossible to keep out the crap. I now have 15200 something users that are not legitimate. Now that they are all over here, I need to delete them all and start over. They all submit porn and other crap. I implemented every security option available, and it still kept allowing them through. I am hoping that this is much better. Obviously, there are many forums out there, and I can't imagine they are all spending most of their time trying to keep out junk.

With that said, what does the advanced user administration include on the hosting side, and if I decide to just put this on our site, will it be a nightmare just like phpBB?

I need a solution, but I cannot drop $200 a month for a forum.

Thanks for the help,
