    So how can you ban someone by IP address... i become a pain in the @$$ here at CF, and SimonV disables my account and bans my IP... But when my ISP changes my IP address, can i re-register under a diff email? and start again? or can this not be done?

    Impossible to ban someone by IP address really because as you said they can change it or email address etc etc. When i had a IP ban thing on my site i stored a cookie as well on there system to say there banned (yes you can delete a cookie, but if its an idiot they want know how to).

    The answer is that simple... there is no way to ban someone, it's just the fact that they can have a lot of identities on the Internet, you can never get a fix on them......

    Even if you use sophisticated technology such as address/telephone/mobile/SMS activation, they can still change those stuffs and start over again...

    What about fingerprint logons? well....I can ask my girlfriend to borrow me her finger then...

    lol.... :cry:

    Oh......gosh......what about DNA authenication?? certainly unique....

    Using a proxy would work or call your ISP and ask them to change your IP.

    Having a dynamic IP rocks. ;)

    If you do have a dynamic IP then turn off your router (if have one or server whatever) and turn it back on. It'll get a new IP. :)

    As stated before CM, IP addys change all of the time, so we tend to ban the user account. To join forums such as this you do need an active email account, but as we all know these can be spoofed and annonymous.

    When members have been on the forum for a while, you do get a "feel" for how they post and the language they choose and if they are banned a mod will know fairly quickly if they are a banned member of not. Spammers tend to be one hit wonders and they get banned straight away.

    FYI you can ban a range of IP addys, say from certain countries. But banning is something that is not done lightly and is a last resort in most cases (unless your a spammer CM :x :banned)

    Are you feeling guilty about something??

    Some ISPs update their dynamic ip range daily and some just don't do it at all even though your ip address is dynamic.

    about anonymous e-mail accounts.....

    I use to be at a forum which requires me to enter the e-mail address which my ISP provides me, and that any other free ones, such as Yahoo or gmail.....will not be allowed to use for registration or profile updating.

    this is not a complete solution as people can change ISPs / or borrow an e-mail address from someone, but it slows them down.

    Conclusion.....banning someone is impossible unless they are physically locked out and kept away from PCs with Internet.... like in a prison.

    After a while you get used to a member's posting style, so if they are banned and do re-register you can always suss them out because they'll always slip into their old style of posting. :)

    Some ISP's leave dynamics for dial up and statics for DSL customers on a *premium* account with no restrictions...
    Then again, i know someone who should be on a dynamic, but he downloads so much he has a static. His ISP must be watching him :biggrin
