Yes you can deal with these moron...I've had it done to stupid members on a forum I co-founded and Admin...difference is...we care...we get money from corporate advertisers and manufactures in the subject area send us free review samples to promote their products to members...so we have an obligation to keep it clean...and we do...it's possible...you just don't wanna...or don't know what you are doing.
I don't know, but don't give me this junk that it isn't a big deal. There is a big difference between saying idiot trolls aren't a problem, but some of the images that get thrown up here are outrageous and SHOULD be a problem...even if you think they aren't.
I guess active membership isn't a big deal, or you guys just don't get that sh*t crap is going to turn people away. "It doesn't stay up long." So what when they turn around and make a new account and pop more up....
And that's another thing...there are ways to ensure that accounts aren't spammed by requiring more verification. You can also have a probationary period where new members post are moderated before posting. There are numerous ways to nip this crap in the bud.
Sure circumventing IP bans is easy enough. That doesn't mean there aren't things that can be done. Again, if you don't care...whatever...then don't.
