Hey Mods.. question about banning people

Is there a way on forums like this to ban an IP address?

Im apart of the South Beach Diet forum and there is this "troll" who keeps showing up.. and as much as they delete him.. he comes back with a different name.

It is the simple forum format... any ideas?

Yes, you should be able to ban by the user's IP.

Okay.. I thought so. I don't know why they havn't banned it already.

Can only the site admin. do it, or can moderators/advisors do it?

Depends on the software, and on the site admins wishes I suppose.

If you have access to all the website files you could just stick a .htaccess file in there and ban his IP from that (Assuming everything is in one folder and you cant access anything else without going to that first).

If he knows how to get around .htaccess then you wont be able to do it that way, (If he can get around .htaccess I dont think you will get rid of him ) There might be some other way that I cant think of right now, but not knowing much about your fourm I really cant tell you.

You know his IP right? Dont want you to end up banning something you dont want banned if you dont know his true IP.

Well im not a site admin or a mod.. but this guy is just absurdly rude and I didn't know if the mods were aware you could block his IP

However, we are doing REALLY well at ignoring his posts.. and are making it a point to not reply and bump up other, more positive posts and it seems to be working. This guy has about 6 or 7 names.. and on a diet forum, you really don't want some creep on there.

Apparently the guy has a dynamic IP address and the mods have been banning his IP's... but he just keeps coming back *sigh*

I love Dynamics as well, lol. I can change my IP anytime I want, pretty nifty sometimes.

You COULD send him a small controlled virus, I dunno what you would have it do unless you have it hold his files for hostage (I belive there was something on the news about this).
