delete from revision r where r.id in (
    select r.id from "user" join revision r on r.author = "user".name 
    left join resource_revision rr on rr.revision_id = r.id 
    left join package_revision pr on pr.revision_id = r.id 
    left join group_revision gr on gr.revision_id = r.id  
    where "user".created between '2011-08-15' and '2011-09-06'
    and gr.id is null and rr.id is null and pr.id is null 
    and ("user".name similar to '%[0-9]' or "user".fullname similar to '[A-Z][a-z]*[A-Z]%')

The majority of our 6000 users are still spammers. Can we simply elimenate those who've not made any revisions? Even if we take a few genuine users with it, these are pretty dead accounts anyway.

Reopening - this is still a serious problem. We can't link to the user page because it is so embarrassing: http://thedatahub.org/user
