Yeah, I've scoured through all the forum settings for something like that, but no such luck. Happy to try a plugin if anybody knows of one... though we're using a pretty old version of the software now, so plugins like that may not even be compatible.

So yeah, for now, just deleting their posts and banning or deleting their accounts is the way to go. I particularly like finding one just as they're registering and then deleting the account as soon as they're finished and about to make a post.
