I've added some code to hide it on &

It's not perfect but it's better than it was.

I've also hidden <meta name="description"> values for banned users on

I've looked into using wp_users.spam for the spam flag, but switching that on causes forum moderators being unable to view user details, regular 'trusted' users being unable to view values, and a few other unexpected things.

Unfortunately it seems that WordPress/BuddyPress/BBPress all expect only super-admins / site-admins to ever view spammed users.
Doesn't help that we've got three different WordPress Multisite networks and two single-sites all sharing the same Users table :)
