I'm not sure there's much we can do here, accounts are created way too rapidly to reliably maintain this, unless we provide someone with delete powers beyond just blocking.

I know there's tickets to noindex blocked users and similar, which had less than favorable input so far though.

For instance we block (on average) 40-60 users per day, and see 1500-2000 registrations just on the international forums (that's not accounting for all of WordPress.org)

  • Resolution set to maybelater
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is being handled in other ways - for example hiding the links and profile fields for certain users.

Hopefully one day we'll be able to go back and clear out spam profiles if we can detect them.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
