Drupal 7 - User Restrictions Batch Module

Submitted by nigel on Monday 4th March 2013
This module extends the existing user_restrictions module by providing a mechanism for the bulk import of prohibited words in the screen name during user registration. This is useful to ensure that on a community site no users attempt to create accounts with offensive names. Without this module, any admin wishing to add a few hundred words to the user_restrictions list would face quite an onerous chore to type them all in. With the module, they can be cut and pasted from an existing source into a textarea in one go. The textarea allows for carriage return / linefeeds and will also remove commas between words. The module was very easy to put together, so I don't believe there is anything requiring further expansion. If you disagree, drop me a line and I'll answer your questions. :) user_resitrictions_batch.module
