Ways to get rid of bots and spam

Post by dvwsdejw on July 3rd 2013, 6:31 pm

I have not only had spam attacks, but a bot made an account (and multiple others) and botted around 100,000 posts. I have two suggestions to keep this from happening again.

1. Being able to delete all of a user's posts and topics from the Admin Panel
If a user's botted and spammed posts can be deleted with a click they might hesitate to wast their time getting them deleted

2. Being able to toggle CAPATCHA on and off from the Admin Panel
I know we can have flood control but my normal, innocent users didn't like having flood control because one person. We should be able to toggle on or off CAPATCHA on posts and topics from the Admin Panel so that botting will be eliminated and spam will be the only problem.
