    Prevents the ex-communicated from returning with name #4 or 5.

    It is unfortunate that the existence of a Torontonian with several disassociative identities (who is easily traced) means no new fans can join and contribute.

    I'm honestly surprised the board is so resilient, as usually when a forum resorts to this, atrophy leads to a not slow death.

    It's also because the forum has been spammed several times with hundreds of new user signups in a matter of hours from various IP's.

    We have ways around people signing up with name #4 and #5. Xenforo is VERY good at figuring that ish out. We even had one try to do it the same way as Byron's friend (sending me a manual email) and we were able to determine it was a previous offender even with a different IP and email address, before I even made them an account.

    We aint dumb.

    Glad this post showed up, thanks for what all you guys do behind the scenes so a knucklehead like myself can hang around here.
