Use the "split" option to pull out all of those posts into a new topic, then delete that topic.

Moved to phpBB Support.

Try using Starfoxj's Admin toolkit in my signature.

Just keep in mind that the toolkit does not (yet) actually remove the posts.
Instead it replaces the post's content with the word "DELETED".
Admin ToolKit v2.1a - An Admins most helpful tool for user management. Now Supports Mass User Deletion!
Change User's: names, passwords, emails, active status and avatar/pm permissions.
Ban/Unban Users, change Post and Resync Counts, and promote/demote users to admin.
Completely independent from your phpbb user account settings. No installation required, just upload one file.
User Upload ToolKit Beta - A quick and easy, 30 second-install, attachment mod. Now Supports Dynamic Thumbnails!
