Have been recently involved in a botched attempt at migrating a mailing list to Discourse. However, the community has decided to try hosting a private group for admin etc.
So I now have a discourse forum full of users I no longer want in there, since things are supposed to be private
I notice that when I change the config to require login and approval, that an option to reject or accept the users in the existing database has appeared. I assume it sees these users as having created accounts but are waiting for approval.
If I reject these users will they be emailed some sort of awkward rejection letter?
Tried rejecting a user of my own, and it fails on account of the user having posted in the forum. The dialogue reads like rejecting a user deletes the user completely.
Should I be looking at deleting all the topics and then users or wiping the database instead?
