    Hey, Im using XenUtiles (Spam) to detect urls on people's their profiles. I discovered that I literally hundreds of accounts that are used for SOE/linkbuilding registered on my forums, and all of them link to very undesirable content.

    I tried getting rid of it all with the Spam Cleaner, but that tool cannot remove the stuff they fill in at Location, occupation, homepage, and about. Is there any other way to quickly get rid of these accounts their info, without actually deleting the account?

    The spam cleaner bans the user, so their profile containing information is irrelevant. The information will no longer be visible.

    So only administrators and admins can see that information? Once a user is banned all of that becomes invisible for guests and registered people?

    That's correct.

    This is what normal users/guests see for banned users:
