Right, but most people get attached to their nics. They develop a reputation, post count, that sort of thing. Let's say a person has four or five sock puppets, each one is responsible for it's own actions. I'm just suggesting don't ask; don't tell. Now, if someone is trying to sabotage the forum or post spam, etc., then yeah, you'd have to ban the IP address and all their nics. Ultimately, however, they can get a new computer, or use a different one and join again. I've joined Absolute Write like seven times, but I can never use Egor, Edward, Veridican, again on that forum, and even more, I can't be myself. So, the ban works, even though I think I'm actually a current member right now, but I can't be myself, so I don't visit very often, and I never post.

At the same time, if you just wanted to get rid of the guy--I can appreciate that. It just seems counterproductive.

But maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture. School me. Confused
