Duplicate Search for and ban multiple accounts at the same time


Active member
Basically I'd LOVE to see some type of back end function that allows you to do a member search, and then allow you to select certain ones, and then ban them all. Of course it would do the standard profile / thread cleanup as a standard ban does. RegEx search addition to this would be awesome.

For example, on one forum we've found that one group of spammers like to use names like this:

<random but standard name><3-5 numbers><random but standard name>

We know enough about their patterns to do a couple of searches to find and ban them one at a time, but when you have so many spammers out there creating SEO accounts, and more coming every day that are transitioning from email spam to social spam (FB, twitter, forums, etc), a multi-ban tool would help out so much.
