    I guess not in bold+with a line through it means the user is banned?

    What if the name is just not bold? As in for instance wofsy here:

    The bold font means that your email seems to work (that is, the email you gave when you signed up). So the un-bolded member should update their email address.

    Sometimes a new user will be un-bolded until their account has been confirmed.

    And yes, the line through the name means the person has been banned, which may be temporary or permanent.
