Admins/mods ... any way to report & get all the spammy crap removed from the board, and ban the user?

I know, he'll just create a new ID but still

@OP

df is going to have to implement a CAPTCHA or something to block automated registration bots...and then maybe 2FA afterwards to knock out password guessers.

Yeah, but the good thing about those is that they have to register on the site with a username. I've handed out a few IP bans as a result. :D

I ended up deleting all the PM Spam and turning off receiving user PMs, so unfortunately I can't advise the username.
