I'm having trouble deleting Spam users with spaces in there user name. i.e. "Buy Sertraline Online 51"

In the User Admin control panel section "Select a User" I paste in the user name and it says "Sorry, but that user does not exist" I can search for that user using a wild card like "Buy * " and it will find the user but it still says it
doesn't exist when I try to delete the user!!!

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Your installation does not seem to be up to date. Updates are available for your version of phpBB, please visit http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php to obtain the latest version.
The latest available version is phpBB 2.0.23. You are running phpBB 2.0.22.

I still haven't found a way to delete spammers with spaces in their name ( i.e. Buy Cheap Zoloft 579 )

Any help here?

Thanks

Maybe Admin Userlist can help you out. It's very easy to install and gives a lot of tools for administering users. It won´t delete their posts though.
