Spam

    When a new user is banned for clearly being a spammer, could there be some function to auto-delete all their posts so we don't have to go through and report every single one?

      We don't usually delete all the posts for an author due to it breaking the flow and having an impact of making some forums not make any sense after the removal of posts.  I case of obvious spammers we do remove most posts.

    That would be like asking admin for entire spam threads to be deleted, instead of admin just deleting the initial one while leaving all the abusive responses and complaints.

    Yes, I wish they did that too.

    My observation, e.g. for the two dating site spammers yesterday, was that only reported posts were deleted.

    Leaving posts started by or predominantly made by spammers leave a continuity.... of spam.
