    Could you post up that IP address? Steps can be taken to block it. Oh, and its unlikely that he'll be able to cause much trouble, the contributors are quite sensible and mature here.

    We ban people per user account, not by IP, IP bans are rather rare. His account would be banned if he were to cause trouble, not his IP.

    If you don't want someone to play spam banning games, why do you encourage him by playing along? We know you're not the same person, and we don't ban by IP. If he keeps creating new accounts and spamming he'll keep getting those accounts banned. He'll eventually get bored and stop. I have a lot of patience.

    I don't see this topic going anywhere so I'm going to close it. Realg187, if you see your "friend" spamming, report it immediately and it will be handled. If you play along and spam as well, however, you will be banned along with him. We have a zero tolerance policy for that sort of thing. Now let's all move along.
