Hello Bob,
One way to do this would be to add password protection to your site if you would like. Here is a link to a tutorial with more information on this: Adding password protection.

I hope this information is helpful!

I don't think that you could effectively block one person without a password admission. If you try and prevent them entering by prohibiting an IP address, which some strategies use, the chances are that the IP address will change within a few days, or they will download an IP address cloak and appear to be from another part of the world.

These situations are always a bit delicate and the web has evolved and in effect was designed to be inclusive warts and all. The argument being that the majority are the winners in an open uncontrolled system

I think that you are probably going to have to come to terms with this and I hope that it does work out for you.

There is a need at times....For myself I block spammers trying to get their links on my blog posts.....Disqus has a pretty decent moderation system for that....As Peter says though people can use a proxy server to get around it....Also your common everyday surfer does not have a static IP ......They are dynamic

It can be a really big deal with kids Kevin. Australia and New Zealand did a study and found that cyber-bullying was a really big deal and had horrible consequences for some of the young victims. this was generally kids bullying other kids. People thought that kids protected from other olders were OK but that hasn't been shown to be the safe way either. I think that all the situations are delicate and almost need individual solutions
