Good Morning wonderful people. Is it possible by admin to remove all the bots and funny numbers and letters from our members list

I've already deleted 652742+ of them using scripts to figure out which accounts are bots and which are humans.
Using a new sign-up mechanism, I've stopped them from signin up as well.
Working through those last few thousand of those bot-accounts will be a manual process - if you can give me a list of those accounts, I can run a script to axe them, most of them are banned in any case.

Indeed, it's been a while, been busy with a startup for the last two years - hence the reason nobody sees me.
The remaining bots are mostly banned in any case, new ones don't know the answer to the secret question and the number of users are down to 4718 after killing 652742+ bots, so only a few thousand banned bots remaining.
I believe the bots are under control.
