    I was just looking at the forum, Incubating and Hatching eggs, and saw a thread locked, so I just had a look to see why it was locked. Noticed something about spamming and they have the IP address and number etc... So, if you know the IP address, and to stop having to ban the same person again, is there a way to be able to block a person with that IP from joining, therefore creating less spam, or banning the person.

    Just an idea

    Thanks [​IMG]

    We can IP ban and we do. The ISP may be notified for abuse of the system.

    I wish the spammer would stop. It's getting annoying.
