Most probably I am wrong,
it looked like a while ago the move to the banned group was automatic
or You were fast to follow my bans with a move ;)

This time, I was fast actually - I saw your message on my cell phone and immediately banned the person in question.

I need to revisit the "ban process".

Yes, go ahead and ban them. There is no meaning to wait for them to do the harm first!

Great, that you liked it - I thought it's needed in these hours of need. Deleting every post individually is pain for a Moderator.

got an approval request a few days ago, but after that nothing,
and some viagra posts slipped thru

Hello Anuj,
I looked at the members list sorted on the join date,
most of the users who joined in the last two weeks were spammers
easy to identify them by looking at the pattern of the userid, at the signature, at the skill,at the organisation

unfortunately there is still some garbage around, due to some phpBB misbehaviour
some users banned with the BAN HAMMER button right after the ban resulted as banned in the member' s list
but lately some of them display as NEW MEMBER in the list, but - rightly - as banned when clicking on them


can You please fix them

cheers enrico

Sure Enrico.

Just for the note - once you ban them using 'banning' or 'hammer' they won't be able to make any further post for sure but yes, I see, there is a problem with group and rank display; will look into this.

I misworded the request, not fix them < the users >
but look why phpBB misbehaves

I looked again, and there are about 6 pages of user to be checked

the email addresses of the spammers belong mostly to

mail.ru
yandex.ru,yandex.com
mymailbox.top
mail.ua

would it be possible to blacklist those domains ?
