 There have been some calls in the forums for a way to delete a spammer's

 I don't think that should be part of marking a user as a spammer. On large
 sites, imo, you want to still give moderators the option to unmark a user
 as a spammer. And then provide a separate option to wipe the user's data.

 Since spammers seem to sign-up in bunches, I don't want to keep them in
 the wp-users table if their data is wiped. So I use a separate table
 (auto-increment id & email).

 I'm sure you guys have your own thoughts on where / how this would be
 I think it's a pretty simple task - just wanted to get queued for 1.7 (?).

 Here are the functions I use in bp-custom.php to delete a user's data and
 'ban' their email
