Dear Mods,

When dealing with Spammers, please 'delete' them rather than ban them!

This keeps an accurate record of true members. I think you have the facility to do this.

Paul,

Try in the admin panel that you have at the bottom of the forum, it should let you do it from there.

'Fraid not - under Users on the Admin Panel I can access;

Add New User
Search for Users
Merge Users
Ban User
Prune / Move Users
Private Message Statistics
Referrals
Search IP Addresses
View Banned Users
Send Email to Users
Generate Mailing List
Access Masks

No mention of deleting users - which is a pity 'cos if Daz catches any more bigguns he's top of my list! :D

Try this,

Click on the suspected Spammers Name,

Click on Edit User Profile - this will take you to the Admin Control Panel

Then use the tab in Quick USer Links (Top Left)

Scroll down to Delete & Hey Presto!

I'm still here :p
That gives me a warm feeling. :D

I've been off work today - MAN FLU - lucky to survive really - but it has meant that I've been able to keep pace with out spamming 'friends'. I think I've deleted 25 today!

What is it with these people?

I've now set up Recaptcha Image verification for the site, it seems to have slowed the spammers down!
