I have set my forum to require user validation via email, and I used the forum control panel to ban the email address *@mail.ru

However I am still plagued by daily new user accounts using the email addresses from mail.ru

After a few days if these accounts are not deleted they post spam comments on my front page articles.

Is there something wrong with my install that allows these spammers to evade the mail ban?

Do you have sentinel installed?

If you do why not just add @mail.ru to the string blocker, that ought to sufficiently block the user from signing up with the @mail.ru email address.

If you dont have sentinel installed (I would recomend you do anyway) then you could try adding the email address to the usercheck function.

No, I do not have that tool installed, I assumed a default installation would be able to block new members from joining if they use a mail domain that is on the banlist.

Usually yes, however it seems that is not working.

Either of those methods ought to solve that issue.

I'm quite certain the suggestions are very effective when implemented as described. Unfortunately I'm a windows guy and my site is hosted for me.

If I understand correctly I'm just out of luck if I am attempting to work with the administrative control panels that are available from within nuke?

It appears that most of the domains are finally being effectively banned.

I suspect that the bot is creating dozens of registrations at a time and only activating them a few at a time.

Is there some way I can flush the cache of pending account registrations?

Where is this table located?

I've wandered thru the directories via FTP and have not located it yet.

Ok, I admit I'm a noob.

How do I access this database? I cannot find it in the admin control panel.

You'll need to use phpMyAdmin
