They told me to delete users. Banning is possible but not recommended,

I just found out that banning works perfectly fine.

it just puts a notice. I just asked admin about your concern on 1).

All connect.o.o admins (you and me for example :-) will still see the banned
account, but normal users will not.

Banning has the additional benefit, that it can be undone, in case we judge
wrong. Deleting can't be undone AFAICT.

I noticed today, without login, a user named "Jolie Ville Royal
Peninsula Hotel & Resort", but clicking produces nothing, so I suppose
he is banned. I login to check. Oh, it disappeared from the page.
Searching... yes, the user exists, but banned.

It is a pity the name still shows. What a name, what a cheek!

Could we put creation of groups or polls by new users on moderation?
That would block most new spam. I guess that would mean modification of
the platform, coding, so better not touch it.

If connect is a platform that was developed for us, I find it amazing.
