Response to Re: User's IP blocked- new member never even posted on board before

I can no longer block a problem user.

If I enter a Cloudflare proxy IP address, then I could be blocking any good user who Cloudflare assigns that number to. I've checked and there's no consistency amongst the assigned proxy IP addresses. The same number gets assigned to different users.

I have no way of knowing the 'actual' IP address of a user, so I can't enter a true IP address into Network54's blocking feature. This Cloudflare service doesn't appear suitable for forum use like Network54.
