SQL to Block "6 Hex Digit" Spammers

mysql -B -uusername -ppassword -hhost databasename -e 'select user_id,user_name from user where user_name regexp "^[0-9A-Fa-f]{6}$";' > bad_users.txt

TODO for next time: where user_id not already in ipblocks table

cat bad_users.txt | perl -pne 's/(.*)\t(.*)/insert into ipblocks (ipb_address,ipb_user,ipb_by,ipb_reason,ipb_timestamp,ipb_expiry) values ("$2",$1,178,"Automated Spammer","20060926180300","20200101000000");/' > spammers.sql

ALTERNATIVE: reset their password

cat bad_users.txt | perl -pne 's/(.*)\t.*/update user set user_password="*" where user_id=$1;/' > spammers.sql

Execute the resulting SQL.
