A while back another board I was posting to had a bit of drama. The site's founder and another chief administrator got into an off-line spat and the founder threatened to delete the whole site and message board. The other admin responded by changing the root password to the message board, moving it to a new server, getting a new domain name and blocking the IP of the founder. It was really a mess.

It got me wondering, though--my wife is a moderator on a board where the server is in the founder's house, so the founder and site IP are actually one in the same. What would happen if she blocked the founder's IP? Would the board stay up or crash due to infinite regression caused by the site attempting to blocking itself?

Unless he browses the forum from the server, it shouldn't cause a problem. However, if that sort of situation ever becomes necessary, you'll want to put the forum on a new server and domain. In that case, it won't matter at all whether you're blocking his IP. Since he has physical access to the server, he can take control of the forum at any time or simply disconnect it's connection to the internet.

Yes, quite a mess indeed! We avoid this problem by keeping our founder (the beloved Sir Lizard) locked up in the State of California, and feeding nothing but tea and biscuits before noon. Shocked

Uh ... whose turn is it to feed him this month anyway???
