Default Can TA block apps from appearing with the appinfo tag?

I honestly can't believe how many times I've had to report the same developer's games for shilling. This is his latest thread:

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=2813525

I'd estimate that's about the 4th or 5th thread for that exact same game that I've seen, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were more.

Here's another one, with several posts by now-banned accounts:

And this is another game of his, surprise surprise, more accounts banned for shilling:

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=173972

These are just some of the threads that still exist, I think I've made over a dozen reports on this guy in total and a few of the threads have been removed, but still he persists.

If the admin are able to block a game from using the appinfo tag, I'd say these are perfect contenders for the part. It might not stop the developer from posting, but at least it wouldn't be so annoyingly easy!

P.S. I believe this is the developer's "actual" account here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/member.php?u=125372

I take it he's either making fake accounts or getting people he knows to make fake accounts just to make the games seem great -_-

Sadly there isn't a way to stop that

Ever heard of an IP ban...? Of course it's pretty easy to change your IP, but not many people know that you can or how to.

Yes, but he could still use a different IP from a different location

He probably won't know it's an IP ban

What's an IP?

Instantaneous Partying?

I was just kidding. I used to be a system administrator at one time, but thanks Royce.
