I wish there were software to permanently ban people as that would help a lot of sites beyond MedHelp. However banning a person on IP doesn't work that well for a few reasons:
- Many people are issigned temporary IP addresses and so banning it doesn't work. The next session they get assigned a new temporary IP address.
- Some ISP route multiple users through gateway IP addresses and so banning their IP would ban any other user on the gateway.
- Even if the user had a permanent IP address they could always log on from somewhere else.
There are a lot of people working on this problem so hopefully a better solution will be found.
