The Problem of Ban Evasion
I asked Trickyrodent (a community admin) about IP bans in 2012. It was still saved in my chat logs.
Trickyrodent: it’s not because we’re saintly, it’s because they don’t work. :P
any 12 year old can google it and get around it.
and there’s no other workable technology.
except for supercookies, which in the US get you sued for invasion of privacay.
so that seems like not our best plan.
me: It wouldn’t be that hard to issue an I.P ban, would it? It would be easier than banning someone hundreds of times.
Trickyrodent: well, yeah. but then they get all snooty when they evade it.
so, why make them feel like they did anything special?
