    Is a users IP banned or just the members account here. What happens should joesoap be banned for serious trolling and he comes and registers as a different user a couple days later?
    I presume there are ways of making sure it doesn't happen?
    contact me if you are in Cape Town and looking for PC Hardware at very competitive pricing. We also do web and graphic design.

    IMO if a person's account is banned and he logs on with another account and there is no shadow of a doubt that it's him again then he should be banned indefinitely.
    When an anti-piracy method is affecting the game for people who legitimately bought it and causing other people not to buy the game, there is obviously something wrong with it!

    South Africa uses dynamic IPs, so we can't easily ban by IP address because it would be useless as chances are he likely won't have the same IP a week from now. Even worse there is the (small) possibility that another user might get that IP and find himself incorrectly banned.

    Yup, Graal has it right.

    If someone creates a new account to come back and cause trouble it's usually pretty obvious.

    So how many points for flaunting that rule?
