Hmm … I'm not sure that banning them does actually silence them, after all. This one seems to have been able to attempt another post, despite being banned by email.

[Edit: my mistake - I was confusing two spambots with similar names. As far as I can tell, slapping a ban on them does shut them up.]

I'll keep banning them on principle … it might at least stop the currently inactive ones becoming active. But really, we need to nuke them from orbit - it's the only way to be sure.

It's possible to slap a ban on the bots, which muzzles them, but I'm still not able to delete them.
Does this mean that you can now login as admin but with less privileges?

No, we're still unable to log-in as Admin - Big D just happens to have a ban-hammer!

It's becoming a tad crowded on death row!

It is indeed … it's going to take a lot of spadework, cleaning up after the spamoids!
