What do you do with spammers here?

Because I'm a mod on another forum, and the admin is not liking to ban people.

What do you do here?

I am an admin at my forums. Constant spammers will have their account suspended for a few days and if they continue do it again after, they get a full username and IP ban.

What does IP mean? :confused:

Internet Protocol - It is a number that every single computer and server connected is asigned with. The lowest posssible IP is (the standard local IP) and the highest is (i think).

Spammers here normally get their threads locked and put on a temporary ban (the length of their ban is relative to how badly they were spamming).

Tell your admin to grow a colder heart because otherwise he's not likely to stop spammers very effectively. ;)

Thanks for telling, guys. :)

Well, we do lock thread and PM them, but at times, people don't have a brain to stop it. Thanks again!
