If you ban domain name, you could be banning active members who would help your forum.

You could ban a specific email address.

Yes you can, when you ban a specific email change the username to *
IE: darren@Forumactif.com to *@forumactif.com
Admin panel >> Users & Groups > Ban control > Email


Be very aware that you are blocking ALL registrations, even the legit registrations by using the wildcard.
In your case the drdrd.com will probably never be used again though.
