I found someone spamming every single one of the forums the other day. I put an instant ban on his account, and he subsequently emailed. Here's how the correspondence went:

From: Don't see why I should, but I'll protect his identity
Subject: WHY WAZ I BANNED.?

WHY WAZ I BANNED.?


To this, I replied:

You were banned for spamming.

This was then met with:

To which I replied:

Nothing is "next". You are banned.

I then received the following, which only served to confirm the decision I had made in the first place:

Tell him if he didn't care about the forum, why did he post in the first place? Hope you blocked his IP and that he wasn't on dial up. Smile If it is his IP, tell me what it is, and I will block it on my forum too.

Good point. Smile

I've actually only blocked his username which I find is normally enough to get the message across. I think I've only ever once or twice had someone attempt re-spam with a different guise after a ban on their username.

To the others of you here that run forums, do you have problems with spammers most days like we do?
