I don't want to over kill this, but felt it was Big enough and Great news for our board that it deserved it's own thread.
A Huge thank you to Dan at 247 sports for getting rid of our regular trolls with a much needed IP Ban for these turds.
247 has been great in helping us. If we continue to have troubles they will gladly assist us. Please let us know.
Nut, I'm old, tired and stressed. What is IP ban?
Internet porn ban.

Good job guys!
It makes it so Sofla and TZ cant some back, It is a ban off your computers IP address. Sofla TZ
Thanks Meyers. I would have never guessed IP address.
Now you really know I'm old. LOL
Cavs and I could ban the troll but they could make up a new user name. 247 now has blocked their internet provider address. This will help to eliminate and control trolls
Sneaky computer douchebaggery?
Nice idea, but I'll believe it when I see it.
Those 2 lead the nation in douchebaggery!
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
Yeah finally! Thanks for all the hard work 247 and mods for getting those idiots out of here. This actually is the end of an era... I mean seriously, how long has Tornado Zadar been trolling this board? What's it been, 2+ years?
There are ways to get around an IP ban but if they try another computer 247 can just ban it and they'll eventually run out of computers to troll on. Unless they are very computer savvy that should be enough to keep them away forever.
Awesome. And yes, there are ways to get around the IP ban, but it is an excellent start.
Ahh...like a breath of fresh air, and yes IP ban will help. Thanks to the mods and administrators.
Great job guys. As neo said they can still get around it by registering at work or a public library, someone else's house, etc. but if Dan keeps banning that IP range every time they register, they'll eventually run out of options. At minimum, this makes it MUCH more difficult for the trolls to keep coming around and bugging people.
The good news is TZ has no imagination. He keeps just adding on to the Tornado TZ-whatever # he's up to.
How does an IP ban work with cell phones? You can still register for free off your phone.
I think phones still have their own IP address so they can be banned too.
Unfortunately there are IP creators that will change an IP address if they are smart enough to know how to use them.

Brains arent their strong suit!
Sounds like there could be alot of IP bans on the horizon.

An IP address does is not tied to your computer, it is tied to your ISP. All ISPs have multiple IP addresses and use them on a rotating basis. Thus your e-mail/browser hookup wont use the same IP address every time. Besides, an IP ban blocks EVERYONE who uses that address, not just the person you are targeting.
bfbuckeye listed some ways to circumvent IP bans. There is also software available which can disguise/alter your IP address as seen the site you are visiting.
You know, if they really, really wish to go through all that just to troll, and tells us all how much their pussy hurts, on a College Football chat site, then I strongly suggest they reevaluate just what their goddamned purpose in life is anyway.
there could be a business opportunity here....How much do you think Sofla and TZ would pay for me to show them how to change your IP address of your PC every time you log in? HAHA....Don't worry, I won't share that info with them, and there's no way it would be important enough to them to pay what I would demand.....
THEnutbuster did it. Sofla and TZ are gone. Nut your the man!!!!
