XF 1.2 Does 1.2 allow you to search profile fields?

    Recently, I've been seeing a new method by spammers. This wave of spam targets profiles, just like before. However, the methods are different. Instead of just filling the profile with a link to their site, they filled pretty much all the profile fields with dots "." and random letters. Then as a signature of their spam they put in "SEO" in occupation.

    Not only that, they spam the Status box with dots "."

    I want to find these accounts, and ban 'em. I spent 1 hour getting rid of the older spammers.

    Can anyone using 1.2 on their beta site(s) tell me if this is possible?

    No, that isn't supported.

    You can find data in profile fields using phpmyadmin.
