#4469: Mark as Spammer
 Reporter:  Jagusti      |      Owner:
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Members      |    Version:  1.6
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 The user experience for marking spam accounts is degraded in version 1.6:
 - The number of steps to mark a user as a spammer has increased. Each
 click-step requires a page reload, which further slows down the
 administrative process.
 - There are no other Capabilities currently presented, so it seems
 premature to have a single option in that screen to spam users.
 - The option 'This user is a spammer' is described as a Capability,
 which, metaphorically, seems broken. Being a spammer seems more like an
 account role or status.

 By comparison, it is a lot easier to delete accounts. However, spam
 accounts are common in BuddyPress, so having an Admin Bar menu option to
 Mark as Spammer is more useful and expedient.


 1. Revert to pre-1.6, with Mark as Spammer directly available from
 AdminBar when in User Profile. Changeset [1801] has historical method of
 marking users as spammers.
 1. Include option directly under Edit Member, or as a menu flyout option
 under a new Account Status submenu.
  * So: AdminBar > Edit Member > Set Account Status > {(Not) Spammer |
  * Replicate this in the Account Settings tab (changing Delete Account to
 Account Status, and present Mark (Not) Spammer and Delete actions).
