Hey, HM,
Just thought you might want to know, we are getting these spambots that register, then create a spam thread, and what i am guessing delete their own account or something, because by the time Widget pops their thread link in chat, we can't ban the user due to the user account not being available. Or as Freja suggested, maybe a guest account. Anyway, i keep deleting the threads as they come in, but not sure how banning the actual account and ip would work.

Yeah, I deleted four of those last night before I went to bed. Annoying.

At least 6 have appeared since I've been online today. It's pretty bad.

I moved one to the staff forum for general representation of the kind of crap it is. And yeah, I've deleted about four more today.

Huh. Users can't delete their own accounts though. I'll look into it.
