Gene - 

If you're trying to ban the user 'Guess' from the IP
don't ban that specific IP addres.. But ban the entire class C subnet as
well. In other words, ban

Typically, a user dialing in(as others have mentioned alread) to an ISP
will get a different IP address each time they dial in. However, there
is a limit on how many distinct IP's a person can be assigned by an ISP.
Banning all of 216.65.106.* should take care of that person for you. If
you notice the person post from a different IP address - that is,
dissimilar to 216.65.106 - ban that class c subnet (x.x.x.*) as well.
Sooner or later you'll get the person, since there is a finite number of
IP's they can be assigned..

Shout if you need more help..
