the account should be locked out. plain and simple.

No.

Creating a new account takes just a few seconds, so that won't help. Quite the opposite. We would spend a lot of time to lock out sock puppet accounts.

I prefer to have it the way it is. The monasty has a few local idiots, and their accounts are well known. A few monks still feed those trolls, and newbies are usually warned quite fast this way.

    I'm pretty sure that "the few monks" among our top 100 that waste their time since years telling the certain monk with stoic patience how to become a better monk will be really amused about this.
