    Since you will typically ban spammers rarher than delete their account you will habe to manually clean up the mess they left behind.

    Ok. Phpbb had a feature I miss called One-Click ban. It would ban the user and delete all their posts.

    this feature exists.

    When you delete a user, you get to choose, whether you delete all their posts. mark their posts as removed, or move their post to another user.

    Go to


    find the user click delete.

    grep is your friend.

    Like x00 said, you can take those steps. You can also delete the users from the users profile page. So several locations you can delete the user from.

    Alternatively you can run MySQL queries, but I would not recommend that yet.
