Sean and All Moderators,
Thanks for the friendly reminder. I totally understand what you need to do and why. But I sure hope you don't get into the ip banning business. I have been in that situation before on another board where I was the Forum Manager. It is a nightmare. You can't keep peeps out if they want to come in. We now live in a world of dynamic IP's. All they have to do is disconnect their cable/isp router or modem and they will be served a different IP then they can register again under another name. Not to mention wi-fi conenctions where users move around all the time. Even cell phone connections now. With a little networking knowledge, anyone can broadcast their internal ip on the fly (i.e 192.168.1.x) and do that all day just to cuase havoc. It is an endless nightmare. You can start banning subnets but that is just going to keep good peeps out that could potentially be within the same subnet that you banned. PLEASE, don't go there.
Thanks for the moderation job and glad someone does keep an eye out. If you do have to banned peeps, please give them more then one warning. Usually one hand slap is all it takes to fix things. If more needed then maybe the person does need to be banned.
Now come on... LET"S GO RIDE!!!
