URGENT! Banning Proxy Bypass

Post by SonicFanGurl on June 11th 2010, 2:56 am

Hey forumotion, I have a serious problem that is beyond my control.

This member will not stop harassing me.
He had been banned in the past because he was not following forum guidelines.
He has been banned both by account and ip.

Well, he keep using proxies to avoid the bans and bypass it.
Then he make fake/double accounts and get on the forum.
This is the bad part.
The guy comes and make slander PMs to all my members saying how bad I am and is downgrading my forum.

I have tried using the admin approval thing, but he makes this accounts too ledgit to tell if it's him or not.
In real life this is called harassment and is comitting slander to flame my authority as admin and turn my members against me. I could bring in a lawsuit.
But this is the internet and I can't do internet restraining orders.

This has been going on for more than 5 months and I can't take it anymore.
I need to talk to a higher authority forum board offical here on forumotion to discuss about this.

For safety/spam purposes, please PM me to get the link and details about my forum and situation.

Thank you,
PokeFreak!

You can't block someone if they are using a proxy system.

Increase the amount of posts to send a PM.

Problem 2,
He will make topics flaming about me. That will not help either.

And he will continue to post and post until a mod or I get a hold of his account and ban him. You don't understand how long we been putting up with this.
We tried everything we could possibly do.

Sorry to hear that, but as KingOfSports said, you can't block a user using proxy. but continue to ban him, that's only the solution for now, hire more moderators if needed that will help you clean the job if possible, for now, that's the solution we can give. Sorry for that.

Increase flood control and block some words. Also tell users about the report feature.

And if you don't mind, I'd like the link to your forum please.
