  • How to Ban people on AOL ip's?

    AOL ip's change all the time so you obviously can't ban someone with that ip because when they sign on again, its a different ip. Whats the best way to ban abusive members who are on AOL accounts? Only thing that seems like I can do is edit their forum access but all they do is signup with another username and continue abusing.

    ban their email.

    use dupeip from to check for same passwords on multiple accts.

    Watch new users with same IP, if you find them on using a new email, ban it.

    Overall, AOL is a pain.

        I'm guessing it checks for people who reuse the same passwords. Which is actually a good idea. Although if they don't reuse the password, it obviously won't help at all.

        Honestly, I find the best way to deal with jerks from AOL is to set registrations on moderation. I've had mine on for about three months and the number of troublesome users has dwindled to almost nothing. The only bannings we've had have been of people who registered before we turned on moderation, actually. Apart from people who were obviously re-registered banned users, but, y'no, those people didn't even get to post.
