BUT DON"T DO THAT!!! Unless you want to wipe all your user info! If
you do this, you will have to reenter registration codes, etc--a real
pain in the neck!

In the end, I decided the best thing to do was to just keep deleting
with the select-all feature. It deletes--a bunch at a time. So, it may
take a few minutes, but you won't wipe out your owner info this way...
On my Newt with over 800 names, it took maybe 4 or 5 tries to get them
all gone, but they went...
