I was clicking on a single post and "Deleting Post as Spam" (which includes all other posts by the same user). I was making a note of the IP address, then deleting the posts and the user or banning them. Then I copied up all the IP addresses into Banned IP's. Then I did Mass Deletes from the "Prune Users" option, putting 0 and 1 as the figures. It was still quite wearing though
