We had some rules that would post to chatter, but we no longer want that feature so we turned it off. Now we have a lot of posts in chatter that we would like to delete. Is there a way to mass delete these posts?

If you have a tool like DemandTools, yes Chatter posts can be deleted.

Kristin,
This SFDC article should help guide you towards deleting your Chatter Posts.
P.S. I prefer to use dataloader.io for uploading and deleting items like this, however, their free version is limited in the number of records you can update/delete.
Hope this helps.

Hi Jessica, 
I recently started going through all of the unanswered or unresolved problems and questions here. Was checking to see if this has been resolved or if it is an ongoing issue/question?
Bulk deletion is only possible by using the tools like DemandTools,workbench and dataloader.io. Please let me know if you need more info.
