    It seems we're getting more and more spammers lately. I've now started banning IP addresses as well. Could we look into banning more IP ranges?

    We really don't have more than 1 or 2 per week and it is a 1-click ban. Go to their profile and click "Flag as spammer".

    I usually go to the admin panel to ban, since it allows me to clear the customisations (e.g. URLs) on their profile.

    Flag as spammer should do all of that automatically. :)

    Oh I didn't know that.

    No issues then.
