Why do some users get banned?
#1
I noticed that the Board Statistics at the bottom of the main page says that Maintenance is the newest member (as of today), yet the Member List says that user is banned. Why do some users get banned from this forum, and why are they still included in the Board Statistics?

Could be spammers. Apparently there were a lot of them on the other forum.

Do you delete the spam posts on the forum? I haven't seen anything so I assume they must have been deleted.

So far there are 55 members that actually made posts and 76 members that aren't banned. Shouldn't only the ones that aren't banned count?

Many of them don't post they just post spam in their profiles to improve the search rankings, but yes I can ban them and delete all their posts with a single click.

If you delete their profiles, then why do they still count in the number of members?

That's the way the software is written and it's not worth changing.
