Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

"Ignore User by IP, MAC address and ISP RADIUS user name" would have been a *very* welcome addition.


Not really. It's useless to block by MAC address since a MAC address is never seen outside the local network segment and I would certainly hope that no ISP is leaking radius user names to the Internet. That leaves us with the IP address which is trivial to work around by using something like Tor.

Why that admins @OSNews haven't banned him for spamming (opening multiple threads on the same subjects) is beyond me.


As much as I disagree with Nelson that's really not a good measurement for banning anyone.

I was kidding.
I am well aware that RADIUS cs/id/hostname, MAC and IP are either only visible within (parts of the ISP) network or are easily circumvented.
