How to delete many draft files at once

I'm a simple user, with no database access.

I want to remove-delete all my draft files, almost 100. I didn't check the drafts tab since years.

Make this manually is very too long.

Any clue for me.

I promise, I will clean it every week.

Currently, the best course of action is to vote and watch the report. Voting helps to increase the visibility given to the report and by watching the report you will be kept up to date with everything posted there.
