Hi Schag,
Plese run thru the details on deactivating the user account; I seem to have more admin rights than I use to but I'm not certain I can actually deactivate accounts.

Who are the site owners, anyways? From the whois lookup, it looks like the site is owned by a content farm.

Don, when you click on the name of a user, to you see (Administrate User) next to the name?

When I click on the name of a user I get a User Control Panel Messages (0) & below the user's name & a drop down box (registered user) or in your case (administrators). Below Add freind or foe.

Don, if you had the ability to delete users, it would look like this when you clicked on a users name.
See where it says (Administrate User) next to their name?
If you can't see this, please don't delete any spam.
I need to see the spam to be able to identify if a user needs to be deleted or not.

What I really have in mind for you to do is to lock threads that seem to be causing problems.
Fights, derogatory comments...things like that.
I do thank you for your help.

Right below this post on the right side, do you see two drop down boxes?
If so, the top box allows you to lock a thread.
If you don't see them, then don't worry about it.

No boxes; funny that I was one of the original persons asked to be an administrator by the original owner yet I didn't receive all the admin rights!
