    As clear and inventive an analogy as I've heard recently.

    Rec'd for the Rowling reference, too.

    Is there any way to tell IF a user comes online with a proxy... or is it the same as someone who's using a normal 'real' IP?

    I guess we should also be prepared to get into Dynamic vs Static IPs.

    Edit: with a static ip you could change your # everytime you logged on to the net. If you chose to.

    Yeah if he really wants to keep messing with the site there is no real way to stop him if he is using a proxy. However you can make things more difficult, in order to post make sure they need to reply to a valid e-mail address (he'll need to keep making new e-mail accounts everytime he gets banned).

    But if you have his original IP (I doubt he started here using a proxy) you can always report him to ISP.
