would be too much work to ban them

even banned,
they would still appear in list of members
-- i have no way of removing them

Birthday lists only appear to signed-in members so that limits the damage to them only. The profiles of these spammers contain links to their sites which is why they did this to start with.

Banning/removing this Birthday list (as nobody actually uses it) is actually a good idea
