Quick Ban on Account Delete

  I disagree with a few of the statements posted here. I have access to a few forums that get a lot of traffic which enabled me to witness the logs which show user (spammer)  behavior after an IP is banned.  The same IP that belongs to a spammer does indeed attempt registration or forum access repeatedly which clearly shows in the ban logs. To ban an IP permanently is incorrect mostly due to dynamic IP assignment from various ISP's  but putting a time limit on such a ban for ie. 5 - 15 days is adequate. However, one would have to develop the means to automatically delete those IP/email bans prior to them expiring because an expired ban would let the user/spammer gain access after the ban.
