The behavior is the following when using BotScout:

1. user registers

2. user is detected as bot and email is sent out to admins

3. no email for verification is sent to user

4. no admin can resend verification to user - no email is sent

Is it really supposed to work like 3 and 4? I think email should always be sent out and then admin can block/delete later if needed.

Why should an email be sent out to a user detected as a bot causing more work for the admin to delete/block them later? It almost seems pointless to have a bot detection system in place if you're going to have the admin do the all the work regardless. Know what I mean?

In my case I get a lot of false/positives. What about 4 - when I manually click Resend. Don't you think it would override and previous detection?

if you know it's a false positive then the admin can directly approve the user. No need to send a an verify email.

I am "quite" sure. But validation is a vital part to draw the user back to the site. I think you should either hide Resend verification (if it does not work) or override (makes most sense as it is manual). Everything else is confusing.

Thanks for a great forum!

Ok its actually one bug. With the next release it will be possible to resend the validation email to the user.
