Thousands of spam subscribers
I have just taken over maintaining a neglected wp with bp site theculinarytrust.org . I have updated to wordpress 3.5.1 and buddypress 1.6.4 and all is working well. The problem is with the site’s subscribers. There are over 35,000 subscribers, most of which are sploggers. I’ve been using WangGuard for the last week or so, and it does a great job spotting new splog signups. The problem is all the old subscribers. I’ve tried the WangGuard wizard, but it does not get anywhere near the number of sploggers I need removed.
Is there some plugin that could help me filter out human subscribers? Is there some way to send an email to all subscribers to verify their humanity!?
Hope you can help with any ideas or solutions.
