Re: Data from deleted users remains in wp_usermeta and wp_signups
I really do appreciate all the work you do. I’m just really frustrated with the lack of synchronization and consistency between Buddypress xprofile and WordPress users/usermeta etc. Automattic needs to take a serious look at member management.
FYI, here’s the response from the WPMU forum:
Because if a spammer signs up, for instance, and you delete their username and blogs, if their registration member is also deleted, then they can sign up again.
I’m not satisfied with that answer. There must be cleaner ways to block/blacklist spammers.
Isn’t there a plugin that deletes users more thoroughly?
