    Banning spammers on the first offense



    I think you should start banning spammers on the first post on the IP level. Just a thought.

    its not possible. At the ISP level it can also effect a load of other posters.

    I will be upgrading the site in the next month or so to try and stop them.

    at the moment the mods are doing a great job.

    and a big thanks to members who are also reporting them

    Not the ISP level, the IP level, should be pluasible, but good to hear that there will be up grades.

    Where there is a spammer I'll be waiting with the feared 75mm Howizter of spam death!

    Even at the IP level this could affect a whole block of streets maybe a town in some cases.

    Ditto about Webram praising the reporters.

    Not every ISP gives their customers a static IP address. Also some of the ISPs use proxies to cut costs.
    Not to mention that spammers can use a proxy.
