Since it is possible for people to spam tracker threads with 1000s of posts, it would be nice if we had an admin tool which could effectively "delete from tracker_posts where userid=@offender and trackerid=@this_tracker"

    Hi! +1000 for this feature. My project is being spammed by an auto-reply from a user who has initially added a tracker item (u/raviart). Apparently his email addres is changed and he sends an auto-reply to the tracker saying that. This causes the tracker to bounce again to him (and me! :( ).

    I don't know how to stop this. I have tried to delete the tracker item, no success. The bounce keeps coming.

    I played around with the permissions of the tracker. I added the user to all the block lists and it stopped the bouncing/spamming process. It took a while (and help from the co-user zeromus - thanks mate!) to find about this (to me) new banning system. It would be nice to have a 'Block this user' right from the tacker to kill the spamming process right from the source.

    Alternatively: The tracker (though) the mail could also take some actions to drop enormous amount of mails from one and the same user.
