    I was sort of joking, but really it is frustrating to sort through 70 emails, just to find that all of them are spam. What way to spend my evening...

    It says he's banned in his profile.

    That makes me think... anyone with a dynamic IP could make one helluva spammer.

    Nah, you could track them and contact their ISP, which isn't hard to do; then they would probably have their Internet service suspended for breaking set rules which is against the law. There is a way to spam and use an IP address which cannot be traced back to you, but I won't go into any detail on that, for security reasons.

    That is what a ***** is for I don't believe the admins can ban other than IP, so get a ***** and whoosh, you're baa-aa-aack.

    Yeah, right. That's what the "r" is for, just to prove that you know, which is to say that you are absolutely correct.

    Of course I'm correct. What else would you expect from me?

    I've been doing a little 'looking round' as you might call it. Whilst both spammers have different IP adddressed, they both are in fact from Seattle, and are both on the ISP US Network Services.

    Well, it is hard to add blame when it isn't known, since there are sure to be more than 1 person in Seatlle on that network service. Coincidence, probably not though.

    I remember meeting someone who called himself a "Professional Community Advertiser". Basically, he'd hire himself out to companies or people looking for advertising. He had several different IP's and, of course, several email addresses. He'd pick a forum and get several usernames, each on a different IP. And then post as many messages as he could until getting banned, and then switch usernames. He said the different IP was to get around IP banning. Apparently, it must have worked because companies would hire him....
