Well I'm more of a graphical editor. Care to share which one you guys think i should do and the best way to do it. I would like to keep subscribing to topics but that posting lag just kills it.

If somebody has that many banned users, I have to wonder if they're banning spammers instead of deleting them. Banning spammers is silly; spammers should be deleted and, if necessary, their usernames should be disallowed.

Yea it seems to be just user names. I can clear the banned users since i do ban them by ip as well, but will it slow down from the ips as well?

You should only ban by IP if you see the same IP address/range a lot or if you don't care about traffic from a particular country/ISP.

As for the above query slowing down, notifications aren't done by IPs, so removing banned users should speed things up.
