Ralph, what you do not understand is that when an annoying person is 'bumped' as you recommmend, it often bumps a whole lot of people who had nothing to do with the problem. Maybe in Australia everyone has their own unique IP number but in PNG heaps of people share the same IP. When the IP is blocked, everyone is blocked.
Are you so certain about your easy solution now?
