Maintaining the list of bogus accounts

Add links to the user pages for suspect- or known-bogus users. (This keeps other TWiki admins in the loop.) Note the date, the action taken, the reason for the action, and the people involved. Place newer entries first (so the list is maintained in reverse chronological order). Move entries between sections as needed.

  1. On the user page for the account:
    1. Add some notification text, such as: This account has been suspended due to apparent violations of our TermsOfService. If you feel this is incorrect, you may ContactUs.
    2. Change any links to outside websites to point to this page instead. This keeps spam links from being followed.

  1. Set the offending user's topic parent to be this page.
  2. Remove the offending user's topic from the TWikiUsers page.

  1. In the list below, add a link to the user page. Note the date, and any remarks. Place the newest accounts first (so the list is maintained in reverse chronological order).

After some reasonable amount of time has elapsed (to allow for a user to contact us, in case we made a mistake), delete the user page entirely. Don't both with the Trash; just remove the files from the host server filesystem. Leave the (now dangling) link on this page intact, as a long-term record.
