Attn mods - I think I've identified a [potential] spammer...

Uh thanks, but you do know that we don't have fixed IP's in SA? Ban one, and then when innocent person #2 gets assigned that IP you are banned for something you had no part of. Just happened to me with Showmax - and the grief involved with trying to fix it was ridiculous. Eventually just switched my router off overnight so that it would reset and give me a new IP - zipzap problem solved.

Long story short - banning IP pointless
It's not local people causing the problem. Easy to ban non local IPs posting spam as it's usually fixed connections. Then the off chance somebody gets assigned the same IP they just reconnect and problem is solved.
