- What happens? My guess is that he can't login. Perhaps someone who has been banned can answer.

There are some banned users who have possibly returned to the site under a different user name.
Firstly, is that the case in your experience?

-That is very possible. Usually the second user name is caught sooner or later and banned too.

Secondly, is there anything to stop a banned user from merely using a new IP address?

-No. That is (I believe) the way they do it.
Thanks very much for taking the time to explain. Cheers.
