500 posts in 10 minutes by spam bots! Cant ban Guest "IP" - fakeblondguy - 2012-04-10

I can't ban a guests IP address I'm new to mybb still but I checked the admin cp settings and it seems to be fine? But its not! lol

500 posts by spammers in 10 minutes, I deleted them all manually and locked the forum from guests creating a new thread.

Help, lol? When I click a guests name it says logged IP and I click on logged IP and it says the following
Quote: You do not have permission to access this page. This could be because of one of the following reasons:

1. Your account has either been suspended or you have been banned from accessing this resource. 2. You do not have permission to access this page. Are you trying to access administrative pages or a resource that you shouldn't be? Check in the forum rules that you are allowed to perform this action. 3. Your account may still be awaiting activation or moderation. (Resend Activation Code) 4. You have accessed this page directly rather than using appropriate forms or link.

You are currently logged in with the username: '2828'

My admin account is already activated? I havebtryed two seperate admin accounts. Wtf lol so I click on "resend an activation code"
Quote: It appears your account is already activated or does not require email verification.

These are the IPs of the spammers who registered howevermim unable to ban guests?

33.3(recurring) hours of your posts per 10 minutes would result in you being a big board owner. Grats.
