    Re: how to get rid of this man

    If you must feed this troll or want to find ways to avoid future muppets you'll need to spend some time installing and tweaking some anti-spam style mods/hacks on your forum.

    For phpBB2 I've found that the following help:
    - iplogger
    - proxy blocker (or at least something that ID's proxy users)
    - anti-spam
    - cback's crackertracker is useful too (see miserable user function )

    ... beyond that you need to allow time to observe habits of your troll(s) and learn things like keywords, preferred email domains, etc.. then tweak your filters and ban lists accordingly.


    As everyone has said though it ultimately comes down to ignoring the daft little twerp, attribute the attitude to everything from lack of sex life, inability to satisfy wife, GF, etc.. or just lack of power.. These idiots live for power though so if you ignore them and don't react publicly to their actions they get bored and move on to a much easier target...

    The recommended action is not to retaliate just as contink says.

    On a more interesting note the content that my troll posted was jealousy to do with my gf. His obviously repressed homosexuality made for some interesting discussion with various people.

    ROFLMAO..

    I had actually forgotten about the "amuse yourselves by talking about the troll in the third person, do you hear anything? I can't" way although this just gets them mad.. but it's always fun as a last resort

    Exactly. It's even more fun if you know them in real life and can make them suffer a bit for acting a pratt on your forums/guestbook/whatever

    Email or phone them. abuse@$isp.tld$ is usually a good place to start.

    to find out his IP simply turn on IP logging on your forum.
    to find out who owns the IP address (hopefully his isp and not a proxy) an NIC lookup should help.

    Assuming they've not marked their info as private of course.
    After that, you'll be able to contact the ISP however you can. Be sure to tell them the exact date + time that they were on and what the IP address was.
