    I got a massive spam attack from IP 213.5.71.12 i have WP-Ban installed and that user gets around that and Akismet. Has anyone had run-ins with this user?

    You can try blocking it with your .htaccess:

    order allow,deny
    deny from 213.5.71.12
    allow from all

    As for wp-ban, perhaps you could try the authors forum for that? (although it does look like he's no longer updating it)
