Topic: how does banning work?

When banning a member, the interface which is appearing shows username, ip and email.

I normally delete the entries for username and ip and I just ban the email.

How does the banning system work?

ie if i keep all and the spammer returns to re-register, does it find a combination  of the 3 or does it check for one of the three fields?

Re: how does banning work?

  • If you ban by default all three will need to be matched to block him registering again.

  • If you ban the IP he can try with other email addresses and usernames but won't succeed.

  • If you ban just the email address that will stop that email being used from any IP or with any username.
