Cleanser Plugin - List Not Limited to Users with 0 comments/discussions

I'm trying to use the cleanser plugin to purge users that resulted from a massive spam attack on a site I manage. From reading the readme, I think that the plugin is supposed to select users with zero comments or discussions. But that is not what is happening, the resulting lists seems to include all the users irregardless of the number of discussions/comments. Is there something that I've missed here?

  • @peregrine‌ this is your plugin. maybe you can most easily say what i'm missing here?

    I've changed the plugin a number of times based on user requests. It now selects users regardless of comment and discussions as far as I can recall.

    probably line 7 in the readme needs to be removed.

    what would you like to do?

  • My site has recently suffered a massive spam attack. We have something like 15K users, almost all of them not legit I think. Most of these users have 1 discussion or so... I am just looking for tools to help me chip away at getting these spam users out of the system...
