    I don't see why not. Vaders can still browse the forums and find a new target

    Evaders will still just create another account.

    Then be banned shortly after.

    Can't you add an auto ban feature?

    Making any section private until registration takes a serious amount of thought prior to enacting. The thing about it is it will affect everyone. For example, once the section goes private threads will no longer be indexed into google meaning less people will find poe sells. Which negatively impacts the site as less traffic it also impacts sellers as less people will actually be viewing the threads all together.

    On top of that, ban evading would need to be taken into consideration. The thing with ban evading, what we can actually track is extremely limited (aka IPs) majority of the people have dynamic IPs which would then make any sort of "auto banning' feature useless. On top of the fact scanning an entire IP database everytime someone registered would be quite server intensive and easier said then done. On top of the fact the "imposter" would need to be unbanned for like a total of 6 seconds to view a thread with a skype posted.

    Before proxies and VPNs are brought up, they are monitored closely.


    Basically, this is something that would need to be seriously considered as it will have a heavy impact on everyone. The real question is, would it actually make a big enough difference? I personally don't see it having as big of an impact as you are hoping to see.

    As mentioned before doing so would decrease any if not ALL SEO, meaning no more organic traffic, if we want B-S to get bigger they can't do this.
