    Is there anyone even running the software here? I sense a disturbance in the force.

    And they have also found a way to ban IP addresses on a reload-by-reload basis.

    We could do that, too, but it would require us to work!

    On a more serious note, give it a day or two. We'll tackle it.

    There are many ways to ban a user. Banning their IP address is probably one of the worst methods, and for many good reasons. Still, it's an option in vBulletin, phpBB, and several other forum packages.

    How many users has BAUT banned? Hundreds, if not thousands.

    How many users have we banned? Uh, one?
