    I added a Captcha
    then added "get user IP"
    but he logs in from a different IP each time
    (not even the same main group)
    so I cannot even block a range of IP
    ideas?

    Hi, I'm not a coder, so I don't know which code to use.
    Since his IP is changing, it means that he has Dynamic IP enabled, so you cannot block the IP addresses or even specify a range.

    Why not just delete the account?
