In case anybody cares, I've taken to renaming the user registrations of spammer accounts to "Nemo" (as well as wiping their email addresses, ICQ numbers, and other contact information and resetting their passwords to gibberish). There are now multiple users called "Nemo" and none of them have made any useful posts. I've decided that "Nemo" is better for the board's overall good nature than "dirty evil spammer". The latter is more accurate, I know.

Can't you just delete the id?

Yeah, but then I'd also have to delete the posts, and that's more work for me. Easier to do it this way.
