    I use the SFS feature on my forum to help combat registration spam. However, I'd like to know if I could potentially disable username lookups? To me, the username function is not so good. If for example, someone chose the username 'Bob', they would likely be blocked as a spammer due to 'Bob' being reported as a spammer name countless times before. This causes issues and requires my approval.

    Is it possible for me to remove the username lookup feature at all?

    This would require custom development. All flags are checked by default.
