I truly expect, that it's the case, and that's he will stop this, otherwise your IP will be banned forever.
I have a question about IP banning, what problem does it solve? most home users don't have static IPs, the ISPs rotate the IPs for security and to prevent servers from being run on a residential broadband connection, and if this clown is on dialup, what stops him from getting a new IP by judt reconnecting.
and what about an honest joe that gets the banned IP, he is screwed if he wanmts to post.
Why block the IP when in a matter such as this you could have the connection pulled by contacting the ISP, as most ISPs have a decency claus in the TOS, that basicly says "no spamming and no pornographic or offencive flameing(as I am no lawyer, this is the best legal speak I can do)".
and then there is annonimizer...
