    Kind of. You can ban IP addresses. What info do you have from this user?

    Did he make a comment on your site? If so it includes the IP address.

    He did....and when I click on his name it shows his email and website..but no IP....sorry, am I missing it?

  6. Are you an admin on your site? Visit http://your-self-hosted-WordPress-URL/wp-admin/edit-comments.php and it should show up.

    Or are you using a WordPress.COM blog?

    So now that you have the IP you can ban them from your site using a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ban/

    or if you just wanted to ban them from commenting you can put their IP or email address under Settings > Discussions
