Mass delete users if email contains ".top"?

I have a lot of spam users registered with emails ending with the TLD ".top".
I would like to delete all these users. Is there a way to mass delete them?

Maybe through PHPMyAdmin or is there a mod for this?

The answer to both is No.

For what reason in particular do you want to mass delete them ?

the database queries mentioned in the 3rd post will work just fine...

In phpmyadmin go to your database and run the query:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

will delete every user with "mailru" in the email address.

But manually running queries can be dangerous!!! 1 little typo and you might end up deleting everyone so before you ever think about doing this make sure you have a backup of your database.

Got this from this thread ....

Do not do that, its very bad advice.

There is a LOT more to deleting users than just the user table.

(The post is almost 7 years old btw).

If they are just spam users who probably don't have any posts then this should be fine ... correct?

They're all spammers.

Yes, I know that, you mentioned it in the first post. ;)

But why do you want to delete them, as opposed to just ignoring them, what issue are they causing you ?

use the User Moving/Pruning System and move them all to the banned group
