In any of these cases, I ban them immediately without even giving them the chance to post.

As for those spammers who've already managed to post (like those this morning), once the spam posts/threads are selected, it takes two clicks to both delete and ban all of the posts and members as a whole.
Well, that's good to know. Thanks for sharing.

But why wasn't it like this before? It just recently started as far as I know. I mean, there's a whole thread devoted to spammers now. That's bad.
