Hey. I banned a member but they are able to still login even though their username is banned and IP is banned. Anyone help?

Hi,

How are you determining that they are able to log in? The "last visit" date would be updated even for banned users.

They keeped loggin in. I think they are gone now but what if I get a whole army of spambots and they don't disappear. How do I make the ban thing work? Maybe I should get prime ban thing?

Banned users can log in. They are presented with a "you are banned" page, but they are actually logged in.
