Indeed it sounds as nice to have but doesn't work for the classic way in WiFiDog how users are handled.

Users are allowed to sign up as often as they like to, as long as they provide a unique valid e-mail address.

Kicking of blocking specific users would only work, if you'd disable new users sign-up.

So the question is, of how much importance this feature is and if we'll need to add it to WiFiDog 1.0 or WiFiDog 1.1 ...

I think looking at the way some users are implimenting WiFiDog a user account manager would be rather useful. For instance I'm using it in libraries to restrict access to the network, and to monitor who is using it then. Although I can suspend a user by editing the database and invalidating their account, a nice front end to it would be great.

I think it'd be helpful to get this feature in release 1.0. Unfortunately there are many people out there who use free WiFi? to spam blogs etc, and it'll also help increase adoption amongst local government & business WiFi? providers who have a responsibility to prevent misuse.

Being able to ban a user by MAC address would also be great to prevent users re-registering accounts.
