An un-bannable user?!

Post by ifureadthisdie on August 12th 2010, 8:08 pm

Hello...a while ago, my forum was attacked by a couple of trolls. They were handled easily by simply IP banning them all. However..1 of them was unbannable no matter how many times i banned his IP. He said the reason he can always just keep coming back is because he has a "Dynamic IP". Whenever his IP was banned, he just changed it. Now he probably got tired or felt like he "won" and left. But if he, or any other person comes back who i also can't get rid of even via IP banning, what the do i do in this situation?!

Which he made tons and tons of. The whole reason i jumped to IP banning was because regular banning and email banning didn't work.

There is no permanent solution. Just keep banning him. It takes him more efforts making new accounts than you banning him. He'll get tired of it, eventually, no matter what big donkey he is.

He just comes back, the whole point is that he was invading the site, banning him or deleting him in anyway did NOT WORK! He just makes a new account!

Even if i did it all 100 times he just comes back. New email, new IP, new account. It does not matter he just keeps coming back!

I was hoping for something a little more technical, that takes him out in one shot...

And never talk to him - trolls are attention *hores and they feed on people's emotions. Just ban.

Yeah good point. If you just ignore him and keep banning him like it doesn't affect you he will stop.
