#5047 new defect (bug)

Add check to forum subscriptions if the account is "Blocked" or "Spectator"

Description

When a user for cause has their forum account set to "Blocked" or "Spectator" then they lose the ability to edit their existing subscriptions.

Can a check be added to the subscriptions so that those two account types do not get notifications from the forums?

A user that was blocked (for cause, that's important) and is still getting emails from the forums. Because their account is "Blocked" they cannot edit or clear their subscriptions.

Blocked users, yes those shouldn't receive anything (and I see there's a bbPress ticket for it :) )

Spectators should still be able to subscribe and modify their subscriptions though, that's in the nature of the name even, they're watchers and should be able to do the watchful actions. A quick test shows me taht bbPress does allow for this, so if that's not working on WordPress.og, we should fix that.

While blocked on international (wordpress.org) forums users are not able to log in and change their subscriptions everywhere.
But it seems they can and are receiving emails for local (rosetta) forums, if they are not banned there.

While sending emails, role on main forums should be checked too, and if user is bbp_blocked - dont send that mail.

Appears this is likely working on WordPress.org as well, as all the subscription capabilities are 'spectate'.

Users who are blocked on the forums no longer receive emails, as the email system is set to explicitly not send to blocked user addresses. That should apply to both the English and Internationalised forums.

I think this ticket can be considered fixed.
