-This feature was originally created as a means to ban spammers from the site. Banning a member bans them from the site and they will be presented with a blank page when they attempt to login, this is because they have been banned from the site, not just banned from accessing their account. Using this feature to ban member'​s email address for example ​also has the potential of producing errors in your admin error logs, such as "​Undefined index: email" errors. These errors generally don't mean much other than they are annoying to constantly see them in your logs.+This feature was originally created as a means to ban spammers from the site.

Once you have deleted a member you can ban their email address so they can't use it again to sign up. Although this often tends to be nothing more than a minor inconvenience and a total waste of time as spammers typically have multiple email addresses they use for registering on sites.
