Removing unpaid registrations, found strange payment=Admin records

Because of the way Event Espresso works, it creates a database row for every registration before the user has paid. Some users change their mind and never pay, or may hit the back button several times to change things on the form. You end up with a number of stale, unpaid registrations.

To keep things tidy, I’ve setup a cron job on my server that looks for registrations “WHERE payment_status = ‘Incomplete'” from a week or more ago. Some of the rows returned by this query are very strange. Their payment column says “Admin”, so I asked the only other user that logs into WordPress if he manually entered any accounts. He did enter some, but a number of them had their names in all caps, which he would never do.

So, if I didn’t create them and he didn’t create them, how do these records exist with payment = ‘Admin’?

One way that this could happen is the record was created on the front end, and updated later by an Admin.
