    I am trying to run (with help of my wife) a (Vbulletin) self help forum for women. Its pretty new and we only have 500 members.

    All of a sudden a group of abusive users keeps registering, cursing, verbally abusing and degrading all our members.

    I have tried banning them, moving them to usergroups unable to post, yet the onslaught continues. Now they are PM.ng members with the same verbal abuse.

    They area also threatening to hack the forum, database and crash the website. I am afraid, not for this forum but all my IM websites are also on the same server.

    I am at a complete loss at what to do here.

    Need suggestions, tips and ideas badly...

    Thanks for your time and anything you can offer is very much appreciated.
