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?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
