Banning IPs is a problem, IPs are often cycled and there are thousands of available proxies that can be found just by searching. By banning IPs, you will also end up banning legitimate users.
A better way is to have a good spam prevention strategy

Even a easy security question can stop spam bots; like What is the colour of the Whitehouse? or How much is 2 + two?

Spammer here!?? :roll:

I thought it was almost impossible... those bots get smarter & smarter.

btw, we should not ban the IP because (in most times) we ban whole groups of people (especially if these IPs are static). So, we need to unban IPs... 8)
