Hi All,

I deleted a user who registered as Shammi999 (or similar).

In my investigation, I did not find any association this person might have with maker or 3D printing interests - but I did find numerous indications that this was a known forum spammer.

Just trying to keep the noise to a minimum Smile

Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I don't remember if profiles allow urls, but those can be a clue too.  MLM sites, adult toys or meds, gurus, kitchen cabinets (there was a big spammer with a crappy kitchen cabinet shop in Manchester), etc. kinda give them away.  In that case you want to delete or modify the profile, which can interact with banning
