    I ip ban them and they come back so im guessing its a proxy...

    I want to threaten them so what could I press charges against them for?

    lulz @ pressing charges on someone spamming on your forum.

    keep up with it. get your mods to keep up with it. wait it out. he will leave.

    or a simple answer is ban the account (didnt see anything about this, just the IP) and then make it pre-approve registrations only.

    Still...change the registration settings.

    Can't post till approved.

    Easy.

    Plus you still haven't said if you actually banned his username, or just his IP.

    Yes, you did.

    However if you didn't ban the user name and just banned the IP address and he is using a proxy, it won't help.

    Is he creating new names for each time?

    Also, what kind of software are you running?

    Delete your forum, you aren't smart enough to run one.

    Don't allow email addresse to be from free email providers like yahoo hotmail etc etc.

    Make it an ISP email addresse that new registrations have to use. And make it either Admin approve or mod and admin approve before user account is activated.

    I thought VB had all these spam settings built-in. I'm dealing with some spam bot on my forum, which is punBB, and has crap for spam protection. The akismet spam protection bans people for posting porn (which is the purpose of the site) - so as you can imagine, that won't work :o
