Jagin - It actually IS possible to perminantly remove someone from a forum. all you need is their computer id number. Using Cold Fusion (or other programs I’m sure, but I only know CF) you can automatically extract it from anyone’s computer. Then that particluar machine would not be able to post again. Sure, they could go buy a new computer, but that’s a bit extreme. Anyway, as I said before, the solution is not banning him, the solution is ignoring the off topic crap and responding to the posts that make sense in the context of the thread.
