Unfortunately I'm not enough skilled in ruby to propose a patch.

Like many other people, I'm affected by spammers that half-register themselves but do not complete inscriptions due their fake emails. So I constantly have a pile of half-registered users that pollute my database.

It could be nice if there was an option to automatically delete accounts that were not successfully registered after a given amount of time (example, 1 day by default or something like that).

What do you think?

For those who are interested, I usually process this easily by:

delete from users where status = 2;

Not sure if it's really safe while redmine is running though.
