 > How about creating a new user role called "Blocked",

 Hi @pierlo,

 bbPress includes exactly this already, but it was originally designed to
 only block authenticated users from reading or writing to the ''forums'',
 not to prevent them from logging back in, or to block the rest of the
 site, other sites, other platforms (Trac, Slack, etc...)

 What @Ipstenu is proposing in this issue (as an extension of that Blocked
 role) is to (paraphrasing) perform more blocking across more areas across
 WordPress.org, when that role gets applied, by doing something like
 mangling user data (like email addresses & passwords) so that the people
 using the offending the account can no longer use it anywhere.

 So, you're on the right track, just a little bit behind. 👍
