Re: Bans should be permanent..

In these days of NATting, if you ban the IP address you ban everyone in that office.

In these days of DHCP, you ban a different person each day, only the first being the target.

In these days of mobile devices, nobody can be IP banned.

You can't effectively ban people because they just create a new ID.

The site can ban the IP address from the site permanently. I've never seen a troll continue for more than 6 months anyway. It's just best to ignore them. Sometimes an ignorant poster is mistaken for a troll and just needs to some time to be convinced of something. I've seen a huge change in the content of this site over the last 12 years and as far a mediation goes unless someone is violating TOS i say let them voice their opinion and let the members deal with them. Free speech is more valuable than comforting words.
