    I'm a new member and when I went to the Members list, I saw a bunch of weird stuff with exclamation marks ! at the beginning of the list. A moderator might want to look at that and clean it out.

    Brushfire

    A mod can't do **** about it.

    And seeing as how this is a MyWowBB hosted forum, I don't know that an admin even could.

    I think they can delete accounts.

    But you have toknow it is a bad account and there are just too many. What is the membership up to now? 20,000???

    If you delete half the BS accounts.. the total membership count would drop. :shock:

    It's easy to tell when the account is full of Viagra spam.

    Mods could certainly alert the Admins to people with multiple screen names.

    Actually, the admin tools from Wowbb are pretty good. I have written a SQL routine that identifies "spam-bot" accounts and prunes them. I run it every month or so.

    I just ran it and it deleted 2,038 bad accounts.

    Fair enough. I don't have any experience with this particular software from the admin end, I'm a VBulletin fanboy.
