I can't delete a post from my jazz guitar playing community. When I click the post to get the 3 dots menu it says 'error loading comments' I'd like to ban the member but the menu isn't showing up for that post.

Also I got lots of spam members with the id of "!" so I switched it back to asking for approval to join. It'd be nice to not allow those types of spam members.

Also I could only delete members one at a time, it'd be nice to have a select all/delete feature for pages of spam members.

Story
Tagline
Plant-Based Author, Online Guitar Teacher, and webMethods Consultant
Introduction
I lost 35 lbs, dropped cholesterol to 112 mg/dL and lowered blood pressure to a healthy level through low fat tasty plant-based eating (vegan), Guitar Player and Teacher (obsessed with jazz guitar), Integration Consultant, Wordpress Geek, Animal lover with a rescue cat. I live in Sackville, New Brunswick

I grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada was good in math and also loved guitar. Got into the 80s 'shred' guitarists and heavy metal for the most part (Yngwie, Vinnie, Greg, Joe and the gang).

Then with the math thing I went to the University of Waterloo for Civil Engineering then on to University of Calgary for a Master's degree. That's where I met my beautiful, intelligent and funny wife Bonnie who was doing her undergrad in engineering. We got a dog named Ben (who's now 16.5 years old) and eventually bought our first home.

After first my job as an engineer and getting laid off I started contracted to gain some semblance of control over my life. So I never became a 'company man' by any means. I eventually transferred into IT as I used to program a lot in my basement as a kid (Timex Sinclair, then Vic20, Commodore 64, PET computers - that goes a ways back).

In June 2010 we moved to New Brunswick. I had been getting sick of Calgary over the years as it grew by leaps and bound, making traffic more of a pain. Plus the redneck stuff like the Stampede and Oil/gas mentality.

I'm out here now writing and talking about healthy eating for weight loss, working from home on occasion in IT and practicing and teaching lots of guitar with online courses, webcam lessons and my own study.
