ban user by email?

What is the best way to ban a specific email address from re-registering as a multisite user if I have already deleted that user and his spammy splog? Is his email address already recorded in the database as having been deleted (and therefore disallowed from registering again) or do I need to do something further?

    Hello William,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Removing/deleting a site and/or user doesn't automatically "ban" the e-mail address that has been used. There are many possible reasons for deleting a blog or a user and WordPress is not able to "guess" what that reason was.

    There's however a plugin that should help you fight that "blog spam". It features some complex rules and algorithms that's been proven over the years to be very efficient. Take a look here please:

    If you have further questions on this, let me know please and I'll be happy to assist you.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
