We have people sending tacos for no reason, what should I do?

If someone isn't following the Principles of the Taco Economy or rules you've set; you can lock their accounts. Locking an account will prevent someone from sending tacos, but they'll still be able to receive tacos. This can be a good way to regulate your taco economy. HeyTaco! admins can lock accounts on the users page.

I can't seem to send a taco, what's wrong?
