    both those threads were made in the last week, are you on drugs child
    Must have been. It won't let me edit my post.

    also, don't tell me what should and shouldn't be deleted.
    Hey I had the word probably in front. It means it's only a suggestion, not an order. You run your forum whatever way you want. You're the one with the hackers.

    what's the point in banning ip ranges if they can use an annoymous ip?

    what if a genuine user wants to access the forums and they live within a banned ip range? bud luck for them?

    Just keep track of those IP's for a few days and then report them to their ISP. Let their legal department do the rest.

    Yeah, that's the bad side.

    Yes, it's a bad side, and it's also an illogical side. This is why only Lefteris would advocate blocking IP ranges.

    A temporary IP ban always helps in keeping away people trying to break into other's accounts. That's one of the main reasons that feature exists, stopping trolls.

    It may be illogical to you but it is sometimes the only solution when dealing with those people.

    But what happen to the people that log in on the same computer if they get their IP banned? I know there are different ban ways:

    IP, nick and e-mail...

    A quite large emulation forum had bans on both Yahoo and Hotmail a few years ago. That forced new users to use their ISP email or seek another free email provider.
