Yes, there are many ways you can ban e-mail addresses from registering with your Joomla website ... it's just that there aren't any mechanisms built into Kunena 1.5 for this purpose. Please look at the Joomla Extensions Directory for solutions to this problem.

With K 1.6 you will be able to ban the email address of a user after they have registered with your site.

There are hundreds of ways to protect your website from spammers. There are even basic mechanisms built into Kunena for the purpose. I was answering your question about "can I ban people based on their email address." If you want to widen the discussion into something else that's different.

What's your question?

Its basic stuff..I moved my forum/website from Zeta to Kunena, on Zeta we had a list of spammers email addy's that we'd added to the ban filters to stop them joining the forum, can we do that here?

If you are asking the same question about protecting your site based on email addresses, my answer is the same as I gave above. It sounds like you are unhappy with my answer, but I am simply answering your question.

I had some spammer problems a few months ago. Not anymore, after I installed Registration Validator plugin. With that you can block e-mails, ip-addresses and certain usernames ;)

While Kunena is Joomla komponent and there are meny thins users want to be developed in forum itself, I understand perfectly that there is no use to start building things that are already available as plugins to Joomla B)

...and I´m just a user myself.

yes look on JED ( extensions.joomla.org/ ) a module for joomla called " Registration validator " (not V2 the standard one) its a great little backend module that allow you to ban usernames, emails and IPs from registering on your forum.

FYI: Kunena does NOT handle user logins that is done by Joomla itself. :)
