    Screen for marking a user as spammer to start off. Alternatively, while in users’ area, there’s an “Edit Members” dropdown menu in WP toolbar for site/super admin where you can set User’s Capability as well.

    That’s what I thought it was for. Thanks for verifying @mercime – I was half thinking such capability settings would be performed via the backend dashboard – but of course this is BuddyPress – for front end stuff! :)

    Just out of interest, if I use the capabilities page to mark a user as a spammer, what does that actually do? Delete the user from the site? Banish them into a black hole? etc

    Deletes user and any/all traces of user’s activities
