Comodo should start IP banning people who makes more than one account on the forums. Cos I really really hate those single poster telling us how they hate CIS every weekend or something. Telling us their opinion is fine, but I am suspious of them making two more more forum accounts just to troll the forums.

If you feel suspicious of any new member for this reason, then just send a PM to a Mod explaining your suspicions, etc.

However, we can and do IP ban people. But, it is a method of last resort that is only applied instantly to persistent and blatant spammers. In all other cases we tend to be much more tolerant & measured in our approach. After all, even trolls have views & feelings. :) And, potentially, security needs. ;D

Not all members have fixed IP's so you risk banning innocent members.

Also an IP may be used by a library or other site for multiple local connections inclusive.  Banning an IP would also be harmfull here.  Delicate situation banning IP numbers.
Please follow Comodo Forum Policy

Bah! Ban 'em all! The only good member is a banned member
And a member is just a policy violator who hasn't been caught yet. >:-D

Here's a big IP ban mess up that happened with Wikipedia. They had banned a UK person not knowing all the UK traffic goes through a transparent proxy. As a consequence no one in the UK could login and edit the Wikipedia pages for a short while.
