    how to get rid of this man

    hi all
    i have a very important question to ask all

    on msn messenger i came across a person who added me he got very abusive and was trying to get my personal details so i blocked him then 10 (min) later i was on my forum when a new registered user came on so i checked the registered details of the account bingo it was him from msn so i sent him a kind message saying (hi please leave this forum or i will be forced to take action and suspend your account)
    (he replied no )
    so i suspended him and ip blocked him as well
    i said to my self thank god he's gone
    then i got a new user again so i had a look at this new user and its him again

    can someone help i have suspended him and ip blocked him and he is still haunting me what else should i do :?

    ignore him....

    He will get bored before you do at moment he see's it as challenge to try and find away around your measures while you attempt to block him out he will try more.

    Once he has had enough and given up just go through your logins and delete them.

    He's using a proxy server or dialup. Not much you can do. Do you know him?

    So a complete stranger contacted you on MSN and you didnt bother blocking him straight away?

    Sorry but you must know him or he knows of you. There are some right idiots on the internet but I find it rather unlikely a complete stranger has guessed your MSN address and then miraculously guessed your forum URL as well

    Re: how to get rid of this man

    Russ is right. Ignore him. He'll get bored. It's just like a school bully, they do it because they're looking for a reaction, for as long as you give him one, he'll keep coming back. Don't even acknowledge his existence. If he posts crap, simply delete them, don't even enter into a discussion. They eventually go & look for a new target, seen it time & time again.

    A good old phrase is - Please don't feed the troll.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the advice given up there.

    You could try banning his new account then turning on manual approval for new members on your forums though. If you don't approve him, he can't post.

    Re: how to get rid of this man

    I'd file an abuse report with the ISP for good measure (but I can be petty!), someone was being pretty abusive on a charity who work alongside the government (so they watch us, as do BBC News!). Ignoring didn't work, deleting didn't work, so in the end I banned them and reported them to their ISP. Haven't heard much more!

    Last lot of MSN abuse I had was when some paedophile was chatting up my 12 year old sister, so I put in report through CEOP.
    About 3 months later 8O the local police force phoned up to say they'd found out who it was and passed it onto the Met Police as he lived in London.

    Probably best bet is report to Microsoft, and ISP abuse report - if you think it really warrants it!

    Re: how to get rid of this man

    I've had issues like that before callum. Also things to do with e-mails from strange people etc.

    The best was when I caught someone out posting comments about my sex life and then gf on my website. It made them angry cause they didnt think i'd be able to trace them down. Silly silly people...never underestimate the power of the geek!

    Re: how to get rid of this man

    I had the particular web app used set to record IP address and i traced it back to the upstream proxy at my school. That and no one at any of the other schools om the LEA would have known the stuff that they posted so i knew it came from my school.

    Then it was a case of tracking proxy logs etc.
