Banned IP addresses

I have banned the repeat offender "smaryKayara" by way of its IP address within VBulletin.

I've deleted this spammer/bot probably 20-30 times now, got tired of it and did a search on how to ban an IP address within VBulletin.

I need to find how to ban user name as well....

Well it didn't work, she logged in a hour later with a new IP.

I have banned, deleted "it" several times and then left the .com addy in tacked and just took all the privileges away. Can't join if again with the .com addy if I don't delete it.

I'm award of the problem, not really a problem but the issue. I will look into it as soon as possible.

What purpose could some have to join, it never posts anything?

Some user named Steammarrots (or something like that, already deleted) was somehow made a Registered user!!!

This bot/Douche Bag made a post in Carbs thread and even made their own thread to post spammer links for who knows what!

This name is an obvious Spammer account, did a mod somehow make him a Registered member by accident or did they hack their way in?

Everyone is a mod except for you GMAN.
I thought we told you at that big party we had last week, oh that's right... .that was a Mod only party

Don't I remember.... you kill me.

This was just my round about way to say "Hey Mage! You activated a Spam account!" without actually calling him out.

Trying to be subtle ya know!
