    Since users like Jeex and NG and King John have shown it is easy to sidestep a ban by creating another username, then why ban people to begin with?

    I am not trying to start trouble.

    I am just curious.

  2. Most users don't bother. We ban duplicate profiles when we see them (it isn't difficult - the IP tells all) but problem users can be banned from even accessing this site.

    Basically, these users can't hide.

    Thank you.

    Feel free to lock if you wish.

    I got my answer.

    Every time I reboot my ADSL modem I get a new IP address.

    How could you ban me forever?
    You stop me again whilst I'm walking and I'll cut your fv<king Jacob's off.

    If we told you that, we wouldn't have an edge anymore, right?

  8. I think on DSL you log on from the same Server that has the same IP all the time.,But different IP on your computer.

    The server does not matter in this situation.

    If you cut off the dhcp server, noone can access anything.

    As soon as your lease expired, you would get a new ip.

  10. But they can't ban a whole server can they

  11. That's right but from a town of like 2000 people,i think you would be able to tell if the guy was baned before and just came back with a new IP.

    The media access controller would give you away.

  15. That mean I have to be a good boy?

  16. You could live on the edge..Get Baned,try to get back in and let us know how it plays out.

  17. Could add it to the "Latest guides".

    They can ban entire IP ranges if neccesary but as pointed out above this is hardly practical.

    Please note that entering a range of IP addresses results in all the addresses between the start and end being added to the banlist. Attempts will be made to minimise the number of addresses added to the database by introducing wildcards automatically where appropriate. If you really must enter a range, try to keep it small or better yet state specific addresses.
    I would assume the only time this would be practical is if you were getting bombarded by spam from certain countries, servers etc. If I had trouble with a poster creating multiple accounts I would simply inform their ISP

    Notice how as soon as the conversation turned to "how does this IP ban able to be enforced", all the mods went very silent ? I think there's something in that for all of us, don't you ?
    If in doubt, Google it.

  20. Most methods are the same for every board.

    Yep, I said they could lock it earlier if they wanted.

    This thread has already gone further than I intended.

    I know of ways around it but I am not saying.

    Sure Convenient that you're "not saying", isn't it?

  23. Not sure if the mods have more access then this www.phpbb.com/admin_demo/index.htm But Baldrick would. Pretty much endless if you have ever owned a site before.

    I do not want to shoot myself in the foot.

    I hope the moment never comes, but someday I might be banned.

    Cap knows why I said this, and exactly what it means. Obviously the mods cannot and should not participate in any thread that discusses possible ways to circumvent the very technology that enables them to do their jobs here. Kinda like a very big conflict of interest if you know what I mean. I cannot expand any further on this for fear of being bounty-hunted by Baldrick, but trust me when I say that the IP tool is extremely hard to get around. If you've seen the results it brings back, you'll know why
    If in doubt, Google it.

    I don't need an IP to spot a dupe.

    Can we implement this into DVD burning to protect the content? [/quote]

    So you're keeping your secret because you see yourself possibly being banned some day and want to circumvent the ban to get back.

    Why not just expend that effort in not getting banned in the first place?
