Spammers and trolls; the bane of a good forum.

I’m not sure how the phpBB mod panel is set up, and honestly haven’t tried this on my own forums yet, but why couldn’t one simply ban blacklisted IPs? There are several sites out there that list common spammer IPs. Of course, I fully realize the pain in the arse that is IP banning, but in some cases it’s worth the chances of a little less traffic. Just sort of thinking out loud here.
