It seems some people are abusing FAQ-O-MATIC. :-(

I tried to remove these entries but I probably don't have enough access rights:

http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/1548.html

http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/1552.html

How about banning their e-mail addresses completely?

You probably do, but you need to actually authenticate before you can do such 
edits.

I've trashed these two and the other as well.

I don't see how that would help since people can just use garbage email
addresses.
