Try deleting him. I should mark all of his posts as made by guest. Then you can start deleting posts. Is he has as many as you've said, try doing just a little at a time. Hope this helps!

If I were you I would immediately change you permissions for your forums for guest to NOT be allowed to post. Because he is posting as a guest. You cannot ban a guest.

Good point. I didn't get what you meant. Do it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Because in a forumotion site I was a member of, the admin got so tired of banned members doing that, he QUIT! Then they had problems without the admin, and the site eventually was deleted. You want to keep that from happening.

Unfortunately, you have to delete them all separately. Not each post, but each thread.

Actually from looking at this particular hit that you got, it was from a spambot.

It appears it was all posted at about the same time. Thats how spambots are, they are in and out.

You might also want to consider putting in an image verification for registrations. See

here.
