Hey Rad or other Moderators

U Look Like U Saw A Ghost - Ex Member

Anybody know what's up with this?  When I look at old posts by *U Look Like U Saw A Ghost*, he's still shows as an active member!

Here's a thread he started:  http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1319585055

And, you can click on his name and go to his forum profile page.

But, at least on this morning's forum home page, he's listed twice as an *Ex Member* for two threads shown there.

If you click on the link on the home page to the most recent post for that above thread, it shows this link:  http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1319585055/7#7

It shows reply #7 of 7, but, that thread only has 6 replies.

It happened to me recently. I was an Ex Member.

When Rad deletes a spam post the member who posted above the spam post becomes an Ex Member. But only for that post.

Oh, good observer!

I have never looked back at the threads from which I have *removed* spam--I always *move* the offensive post.  But, I think Rad often *deletes*.

So let the testing begin--next post will be a test post for deletion.....

Well, that didn't seem to work.  I deleted my last post--it's gone, but I did not get listed as an *Ex-Member*.

So, I'll try another angle....

Well, my second post is now deleted, but I'm still not an *Ex-Member*!

Brian, post a response showing you saw may last three posts.

Then post a test post saying that it is for *test deletion*.

Let me delete it and see if your next to last post lists you as an *Ex-Member* once again.

Thanks Brian--I deleted your second post--but, you did not become an *Ex-Member*!

So, the mystery remains ... for now...

If anyone else can shed any light on this--chime in!

I'm pretty sure it is--but, so far I can't reproduce it!

I think for *U Look Like U Saw A Ghost*, it looks like it happened when Christer *moved* two spam posts to the *Recycle* folder on Feb. 13.

Hey Christer--do you remember .... ?

Did you *Ban* and/or *Delete as members* the two spammers whose postings you moved to the Recycle folder on Feb. 13. 

Someone must have *Deleted* them, because they are now shown as *Ex-Members* in the Recycle folder.

It would be helpful to know what the sequence of events were that lead to their *Ex-Member* status--i.e. were they moved to the Recycle folder first, banned first, or deleted as members first--and what happened in what order.

If we can figure out what sequence lead to *U Look Like U Saw A Ghost* being listed as an *Ex-Member*, even though he's not actually in that category, maybe we can figure out how to reproduce that *bug*.

In both cases, I banned both the username and email-addy but I didn't ban the IP-addy. Next, I deleted the member. Maybe over worked but they can't come back with the same details.

I remember reacting on "U Look Like U Saw A Ghost - Ex Member" but I don't remember if it was before or after moving those posts.

Did you move the spam posting to the Recycle folder before or after you deleted the spammer?

The first action taken was to move the post to the Recycle Bin. Next, I banned the username and email-addy. Finally, I deleted the member.
