Given the massive amount of spam accounts created recently, I need to write some scripts to go through and delete those spam accounts. It would be impossible to go through by hand and delete thousands of these.

Right now my plan is to delete accounts with no attached computers, no credit (on CSG or any subproject), and no activity at wildlife@home. Anyone see any flaws in this, or anything I should change?

The legends are messed up for some reason - the first graph is cc, {1.3, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.5, 5.0, 5.2 }, the second app version {42, 60, 65} These will update daily. Matt
