Recently we've been getting this guy called "iloo424", "onlyiloo", "warboys" (his current alias) or under a new different name every time to attempt to circumvent our post deletions or just to confuse us. We're having enough of this guy though because he has a really bad tenuous grasp on English and the posts he cranks out are pointless like "I LOVE YOU ROBOT STORM" and in most cases they're untranslatable too so we're getting really annoying posts coming from this guy.

So if it's possible can you ban this guy from coming to our forums and spamming the hell out of us? Cheers.

I've banned all three accounts now, but the guy doesn't have a static IP, so we can't prevent him from making new accounts and spamming with them.
We can, however, ban every single account he uses to spam as soon as we know it's him (i.e. after 1 post). Let's see who's got more endurance :p

Guy is using guest posting now. This is really tiresome.

Disable guest posting on Enigma Productions and all child forums, please. I seem to remember that was actually in force at one point but I guess the switch to the new forum version may have removed it.

It is still in force for the main RS forum, but obviously it wasn't set for the subforums. I've adjusted the permissions now.
