    I never ban any single free email account... I actually had to ban a couple POP3 email accounts from a user who was intent on creating dissension in the forums - it's email from his own site anyway

    Users who are determined to create disruption will always find a way to get around the email bans. Our forums tend to enter "troll" phases, where a few times a year there is a whole period spanning several weeks where a troll gains supporters and bombard the forum. We have handled it on a case by case basis and didn't have to resort to desperation measures like banning whole domains from registering

    Then again, I only keep user accounts that have at least one post. Any user account that is inactive for more than three months and has no posts to their name immediately get pruned...
