  • Help: How can I stop a threatening user from re-registering?

    Hello,

    I banned a user who was insulting other users frequently. It turns out the guy is obsessed and crazy. He has decided to register about 10 usernames and talk to himself on my site about how bad my site is.

    Also, he has pm'd me and my moderators about how he is going to launch a series of server attacks.

    I have been deleting his posts and banning ips but it seems he is using one of those anonymous proxies.

    I have made email verification/responding mandatory, but is that enough?

    What else can I do? He lives in Australia so I am not sure I can do much...

    I just feel so helpless to save my healthy community from this crazed lunatic. He is making tons of posts L

    There are a couple hacks over at vbulletin.org that might be helpful. I've never used them, but they sound like something that you might be able to use.

    Ban Proxy Servers

    Use real ip when proxy server is detected.
