Duplicate Remove username as warning flag in identifying spammers

    The username just isn't a very reliable flag when trying to identify spammers, and the result is that a lot of legitimate users (e.g. bob, lisa, jeremy, peter) end up in the moderation queue (unless I increase the number of warning flags required from 1 to 2, which would make this anti-spam feature much less effective).

    So I will propose that either the username is removed as a flag completely, or at least there should be an option to remove it.

    There should be the option to enable any of the 3 (IP, name, email) that are used.

    Well, I agree. I would edit my OP and thread title, but it's no longer editable for me.
