spammers/scammers and bots oh my.
Listing names for posterity, pattern recognition and future search engine mining.

Just a small example of the number of spamming account that are killed each month. This was the month of July 2012, and only the spammers that I caught. Stiv killed many more before I ever got to them.

A couple nights ago I decided to try methodically going through the user database and deleting spam accounts which have been accumulating over the last decade or so. We have a little under 150k users in the database, how long could it possibly take? :)

So I sorted users in the Memberlist alphabetically, then started from the bottom and began working up.

48hrs and 680+ account deletions later.... I just finished with users beginning with the letter Z. :shock:
And those are just the -obvious- spammers.

Wow... phpBB really needs a better user management system.
It is simply not designed to efficiently deal with abuse, especially on a large scale.

An administrative layout similar to the Memberlist, which would display..
$username $email $website $signature $number_of_posts [_] DELETE
on each line would be wonderful.

Also, I find it curiously odd that when you delete a post from the board, you get an 'Are you sure? Yes/No' warning. But when you kill an account, its just *poof* gone. :?

The phpBB admin tools definitely bite the big one when it comes to dealing with spammage. A relic of a kindler, gentler time, perhaps. And one reason why this junk accumulates.

I suspect (but don't know) that the best way to deal with this is via the back-end database. Maybe with a script that could read a text file of naughty folk and do the necessary DB work in batch mode.

Of course, with great power comes great ability to screw things up. I have reflexively clicked on the delete button out of habit more than once.
