    he's getting laid? Good for him! That's gotta be a lot, if he's unable to be in here. I'm voting we either a) give him Soviet back, so I don't've to deal with trying to figure out how to pronounce that fucking retarded name of his, or you ban that account, and make me a moderator, so that I can ban any new accounts that he makes.

    The following is vile, and not recommended to be read by anyone:

    Tell him to buy a black light, go a week without screwing her, (after she's done her laundry), and then check her panties. If they glow like they've been cum in, she's a cheater. If not, she probably still is. :)

    Reading about Telcontar's fate, I find that there is one word, one measly word, which in itself contains all the subtle ordeals of sorrow and perhaps not-so subtle urges to kill certain adulterers with a dulled hacksaw. Just one word:

    Women.

    Even I think that quite a lot. God, some members of my gender shouldn't be allowed to fuck, let alone reproduce.

    ..or interact at any sort of emotional level, or communicate by any means with anyone other than themselves.

    It is if you mod it to be so. Most proxy IPs show up in banlists and nice, publicly available lists of proxies. Implementing the same check I used at the Codex knocks out a fair chunk of them, at least making it bloody annoying to try and use them.

    ... or we just set account registration to "admin approval required".

    Oh really? I guess that shows my lack of education in PHP. The first one sounds like it is more work up front, but will be less work in the long haul?

    Turns out quite a few people use proxies (particularly overseas and especially Russians) or IP addresses that show up in banlists. At least that's what I found when I implemented it at the Codex. We kept out the target users but had a few people saying "Why I not register?" so I had to build an exemption system around it to allow certain people in. Given the few registrations here, I doubt it would be problematic. Truth be told it wasn't even a real issue at the Codex. Though it is only something I'd implement if you get a real persistent fucker who wants to play games.
