Hello WLD,

In order to ban IP addresses from your site, you need access to the htaccess files. Unfortunately, for security reasons, we cannot allow our users to edit their htaccess files. We take this precaution to protect your site from other users who may use their htaccess file for malicious purposes. At present there is no way to ban a particular IP address from your site. I'm sorry.

If you wish, you may want to use a form that uses a CAPTCHA verification which may help in preventing spam. You can use Wufoo to achieve this. By default, all forms in Wufoo are set to automatic protection, but you can also set the Captcha system to always show or never show the Captcha on your form as well. You can find this feature's options under the form settings tab when you edit your form: Edit --> Form settings.

I hope this is helpful!
