Hmm. So what happens if a spammer also happens to be a climber, or have some other legitimate reason for joining Chockstone?
Are they forever barred due to the sin of their line of 'work'?

I check more than just the banned email address as registered with Stop Forum Spam due it belonging to a known spammer of other sites.
In the case of young23 for example; his registration detail on Chockstone indicates he comes from London, however the IP address that was used to register with us was a Spanish one.
Those who want anonymity don't usually lie about such things if they legitimately want to use this Site when their email address is obscure anyway.
Those that I have given the benefit of the doubt too, and waited to see how events unfold, have spammed us down the track; or remained as sleepers for some time and then used the PM feature to spam other individuals registered on this Site through the legitimate email addresses of those members.
>Are they forever barred due to the sin of their line of 'work'?
Almost always the answer is yes.
Our spam policy is quite clear so they have no excuse to do it to us under the banner of "work".
If they choose to have their situation reviewed then they are free to contact Site Author by email and have their situation reviewed in light of additional evidence in their favour.
So far, none have, so they remain disabled.
We have the option of putting code into the registration process for this Site, which would automatically disable the attempted registration of known spammers. So far the numbers involved have not warranted this action, and by having a manual filtering process (Moderators), it is perhaps fairer to spammers, because there are some registrations that do receive the benefit of the doubt.
If a spammer who also happens to be a climber wants to legitimately use this Site, then they need only register using legitimate non-spamming information, and if they subsequently abuse that privilege then we will deal with it appropriately at that time.
