What Can Cause A User To Be Marked As A Spammer?
This is a weird one guys.
I’ve just got back home to see a user on my site left a comment on a blog post. All it said was ‘Congrats Kelly’ as the post related to another member achieveing some success.
All legit, didn’t contain links and the user has had 6 other comments in the past approved.
Now I thought it was weird to see this comment in the activity stream but the member not actually appear in the ‘Recently Active members’ widget.
Clicking on his username , revealed he had been marked as a spammer.
Now I’m pretty sure this hadn’t happened by an admin mistake as I’ve been out whilst this comment was left so he can’t have been marked as a spammer beforehand could he?
I was just wondering what would cause this and also how I can check if any other members have been marked as spammers?
I checked the user in question out in the backend and nothing in the dashboard or his profile mentioned he was marked as a spammer.
is there a way I can get a list up of all marked spammers or do I need to look in the DB..
Any help would be fantastic!
