Sorry walked away from the screen for a minute I know what I am trying to say just putting it into words.
Normally new starters have there first few post vetted to make sure they are not spam etc.
Well if a new member/old member with new name knew that the first 100/150 post were going to be vetted (I know that would be an awful lot of work for admin - but am sure that a few reliable old members would be able to do some vetting to help out in busy times) but people who maybe wanted to get nasty would get fed up with their post being sent to the sin bin before they even got on the site and either would not bother posting anymore or Admin/Nathan could throw them out.
Does that sound a bit clearer

If you ban someone, they can simply rejoin under a new member name.
Just ban their IP addy then they can't join again, I do do this on another site and it works.
Thanks for that Nigel, I was just going to suggest it, you beat me to it.
I go on to a Nautical site with 64,000 members, a really great forum with lots of seaman and ex.seaman and others with differing views as you can imagine. The owner of the site had the same trouble as Nathan, people bickering, being nasty to each other so he made a section called "Stormy Weather" so that they could all have a go at each other and let them get on with it.
He has barred a few people for inflammatory statements who then go on to another similar site and confer with each other saying what a bas---d he is.
I suppose the IP address goes with you until you change your provider.?

You only need to reset your modem to get a new IP address and then if someone else picks upo that old address they can't get in.
Cant see the average guy in the street doing that, you also have a sub mask which you can trace. I remember a post on here a few years ago when a member of the admin team banned a guy who had already been banned and tried to join again using the same IP addy.

Thanks Nathan for working so hard to make the database available after the site has closed. There is a lot of info on there and it is nice to know that we should be able to refer to it. Thanks once again.
