A while ago many oif us here were having a particular guy sing up spam accounts to all of our forums. 

Usually by the name of FIshpal enen.d.soso or something like this. 

I banned his IP, and it stopped. There is a thread on here some where giving the IP adress of the guy. 

But, it has started again. The fish is back, has anyone else noticed? Does anyone have his new ip?
