Nothing unusual there, Indian IP that SFS also indicates reported spammers, most of  the spammers hitting the forum are also Indian IP addresses, but you can't block them all.

Hi DavidR,

Before making them disappear with account and including all topics and postings, I note the IP and report it.

Agree with you that a Delhi IP address may be hosting a variety of such mainly webforum Coinbase phone number spammers, that seem also involved in all sorts of other attack and abuse activities.
For many a continuous pain in the neck. Sending them to digital oblivion seems the sensible thing to do.

And it is not only the spammer but also those that offer them a hiding-place to start their evil trade from.
Not doing anything just seems the other extreme for me.

But I agree you are right in your conclusions, as you most often are,

Kind regards,
