Trolls and spammers help

I have come across a site set up purely to troll and spam on forums. As soon as a member is banned they come back again as they are using proxy IP's. Are there any mods available for latest version VB to stop them doing this?

Thanks

Pre moderate them for a few posts so they can't get their content posted and eventually give up? Maybe even ask someone to code something custom which gives an error page if their referrer is set to the offending site?

Try something like this, it appeared in the box below your post:

Except change the addresses banned to include the troll site.

Thanks for your reply. I do have quite a bit set up already so they can't post links etc but it doesn't deter them. Instead if anything because the forum is so secure they see it as more of a challenge so they are pretending to be "normal" posters to get priviledges!

Just keep banning and eventually they will give up it could be months.
