can you ban using a phrase? (6 posts)

    I'm trying to ban someone who's posting on my site as "managed chaos." If I enter those words into my ban list I understand that I'll ban anyone using "managed" or "chaos" in their username or possibly even in the comment body. Is there a way I can enter the phrase "managed chaos" as a single entity so it will only capture comments using this username?

  2. No, there's no way to ban a phrase. You're better off sticking to concrete things such as URLs, unique names, and IPs.

    The problem is the guy so far has come at me using 2 sep. ips & he may have more. In fact, he may have an infinite number I just don't know. I've banned him by url & ip. I've also banned his ip using cPanel. But if he has more IPs he can keep this up forever.

  4. Then, I suggest that you search for a way to randomize your IP and fight fire with fire. ^_^

    I don't know what "randomizing one's ip" means. Can you explain a bit more about what that is? How would that make it more difficult for him to lv. comments on my site or access my site?
