Unfortunately, I can't see a way to block delete them, just one-by-one.

Can I add a bit of nerdy forum history? Very Happy

There was The Great Crash in the early days when many of the forum logon details were damaged and were no longer assigned to the users name. Those who shouted (, could be bothered to shout) and could recognise their posts got their user name mapped to the correct account. That's why there are so many oldxxx user names in the membership list, those are the lost accounts. I have one of the lost accounts, I couldn't be bothered to shout about it as I'd already re-registered.

However, Dr had been here longer than me. Wink

It probably is as his style doesn't vary much - he registers an account, and I've checked his past IP addresses and it varies a lot so that doesnt help much, its aGmail account, and he spams the board usually with about nine posts per board.

I've set the ICQ address he uses as a banned word along with some of the text strings he uses - but the last attempts of his, changed the ICQ and text structure.

There's enough mods now to turn on approval of accounts before first posting or to ask for the first five posts to be approved by a mod - which is what other boards do.

Also, I look at who has registered a new account each day, and any accounts which have flaky email addresses, or dodgy www links, I kill off immediately.

People who bother to register and three days later haven't even posted are probably future spammers e.g eighteen9 has just registered and given the last spammer was sixteen8, its a fair bet thats them lining up another one so its dead now. It hasnt posted as the ICQ number its trying ti use is in the banned list so I am guessing the script it uses has crashed.

PS I was at a conference today so couldnt clear up the mess as it arrived Very Happy

I always delete the user and check / ban IP addys. They are probably using a general ISP so IP can change every time. I'm with Graham, we should now put new user approval back on to save a daily clean up job.
