Well, like he said, this is an actual person, so captchas wouldn't stop the spam.

I just said. . . It's a real person. CAPTCHA wouldn't really slow them down.

EDIT: Yeah, what he said. ^

Actually it would. If you added re-captcha to all of it then they would probably get annoyed and stop.
The glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it's merely twice as big as it needs to be.

Hmm. . . It's kind of a good idea actually. I'll probably use that until I can get something more my style.

I think the best way would be to block all the ips used by the person, as they are probably not familiar with too many proxies (and possibly find a comprehensive proxy list to block). That, or find some way to make peace with this person.

I'll just keep blocking there ip. Making peace? Not gonna happen.

Hey, thanks for bringing the thread back up. It got me to thinking about it again, and I came up with a solution, but I'm not sure if it will work. If someone wants to beta, please PT me. :)
