I have been chucking out spammer who alwasy uses female name with 3 numbers as username

when I ban him, does that action not stop him from using the same email addy to join site again......? Or am I just banning that username

Ban his e-mail address, if that don't work you may have to ban his IP address.

Thanks GNC.

Would be useful to know what email domain they are using so I can cut of their balls!

Changed registration so Admin has to clear new registration, see if this slows down the spammer.
Can be set back to as it was if any admin objects.

this way he has to use a working e-mail address Doc.
