      Easy, I could ban his IP from the whole server in host.deny but I'm afraid they use proxies.

      I meant, where did they take my address ?

        You most likely need to turn on Captcha as it sounds like guests can use sendmessage.php or send to friend.

          The Saudi's like you..

          Part of this IP block has been used for proxy/cache
          service at the National level in Saudi Arabia. All
          Saudi Arabia web traffic will come from this IP block.

          If you experience high volume of traffic from
          IP in this block it is because your site is very
          popular/famous of Saudi Arabia community.

              In your Admin CP, there is a setting for the Contact Us link to use the capcha.

              Admin CP > vBullenin Options > Allow Unregistered Users to use 'Contact Us' > Yes, but Verify Image
