    Was wondering if the mods have this tool available, we used it on the steroid boards for keeping the rif raf out, being banned and coming up with a new SN and coming back. We also had a duplicate log in checker, so no one could be playing games that way either.

    Just a thought as we start seeing more traffic.

    Yes but it's not just an IP address tool, it looks for coincidences in registration as well.

    Most of the IP scanners are designed to keep out the bots. The bots are just an application so the scanner can use a heuristic approach to detecting them. But for a real human troll, they usually won't do much good.

    If you do decide to install something like this, I'll be glad to be the test dummy. After it's installed you can ban me and we'll see if I can get back in.

    Most of the forum admins like to keep the basic forum software clean and free of too many add-ons. Installing them isn't really a big deal but when it comes time to update the forum software, you now have to update all the add-ons. That can be a nightmare, sometimes.

    Sorry, but we have no issues with security on the roid sites, there's is no room for error. The consequences for security breeches are very heavy, nothing like this lil marijuana game here.

    Once your off of one of our roid boards, your not getting back on, PERIOD. I have the ability to expose your home addresses, FB page, your telephone #s, your family members and more. But then again we also have some serious programmers world wide.

    The servers used for roid forums are updated and moved daily. Again security on those boards is extremely high.

    Its just not that important to this lil marijuanna game i guess, tons have been banned and returned under new names, its really not an issue, people do it and know one really cares, i know i dont.

    OK, cool. I thought you meant a hemorrhoid forum.

    I was going to say.... yep, unwanted entry is probably pretty tight.

    :)

    I haven't been to the gym in almost a month and I can, totally feel the difference.

    I strongly oppose using a tool like that, for what it's worth. I use Tor to prevent my ISP from tracking my browsing, so my IP address will be the same as any other Tor users connected to that exit node. A policy like the one described would block me from logging in here.

    Take me for instance... i've been banned twice before - from other mods...the mods now were all regular members then... and lookie here... THEY aren't banning me now that I'm on the boards again ;)

    Whenever I've moved I've been able to come back under a new username.

    I don't have a problem with banned people coming back with another name so long as it is not to stir up trouble. If you want to reinvent yourself and contribute and not cause drama then great. jmo.
