A word on banning IP's... Other admins, do you think we should also ban account creation from those IPs? Personally, I'm not too comfortable with it, as what if the spam bots are coming from dynamic IP space, or are part of a bot net? Suppose then that we permaban those IPs and later some genuine fan gets it? Besides, if I remember correctly, a determined attacker could just create an account from somewhere else, then use it over the top of those banned IPs (as the ban only blocks anon users.) What is your thoughts on the matter? Miment 13:46, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
