Default Problematic member...

He's been on everywhere, and keeps evading the ban by using "proxys". As far as I can tell, he's using these things to evade even IP ban be changing his IP address. I'm not sure if they're illegal or not, but he keeps coming back and flaming people for being "n00bs" and posting "pointless threads", when he has no sense of grammar or proper behavior, and the threads he's started are mostly meant to flame other members, i.e., "is jabpoké retarted". And every time he gets banned, he comes back and rubs it in people's faces that we can't stop him, and that he can do whatever he wants because of proxys.

How exactly do we stop him? (Pikach00, 1337 misspelling of Squirtle, POKMONLVR3000) He's hurting the forum rather badly, and he apparently can't be stopped.

I know the guy, I have seen him around. I know how Proxy's work kinda. Can't Ryan just get in touch with the Proxy owner? The Proxy site takes note of the IP. Maybe Ryan could find a way of blocking this site from being accesed through Proxys?

The problem with that is that Ryan hasn't done a thing since about a month ago. :(

Proxys are things that allow you to hide your IP address, so the mods can't ban your computer.

The guy wouldn't interrupt an entire proxy server just to ban one guy.

The little moron will get bored eventually flaming people.

I agree, it would be a tad tedious.
Yeah, let is pass and all that. I am surprised Ryan didn't think of circumstances like this tbh.

Even if they could block his IP, they couldn't stop him from getting on as far as I know. That's why he's using proxies in the first place. His origional IP was banned so he's hiding behind proxies to re-register and flame others. I don't know that there's anything we can do to stop him.

There is no way to stop proxy abuse, unless you can SID ban, which isn't available in every forum afaik. But for now, we'll have to stick to banning his clone accounts. Just PM a gmod if you spot any, we'll handle that way.
