Question User already restricted and under observation

Straight away this user was asked to verify their credentials before being granted full standard user access. So far I have not received a reply and until I am satisfied that the user is genuine, they cannot post to the forum without moderation nor send any messages except to a moderator.

I notice this user logged in the following day and uploaded some profile pictures but has not yet attempted to post any messages to the forum. I notice that the Moderated Guest account (Strangers) needed tweeking as it allowed oversized images to be uploaded; this has been resolved.

Interestingly they were able to pass through the e-mail address authentication process using what appears to be a genuine e-mail address!!! Neither the e-mail address, IP address nor user_name are registered as spam as yet. I don't feel that this user is genuine but the FBI haven't knocked on my door yet!

Although I have no objections to pseudonyms being used I cannot say that I am happy for users to masquerade as other living people, whether unlikely celebrities or not! If I was Obama, I think I would use a pseudonym unless I wanted to declare my Arianism, but surely this would invite frenzied attacks from opponents! As the rules have not yet been broken I'll give the user a chance to reconsider their position.

BTW: John Adams, the second president of the USA, was a Unitarian!

I have sent a reminder and will set a 7 day limit.
