Discords current method of permanently banning user's is based off of an IP address. Any device with said IP address on the banned list is no longer able to join a server however this method is ineffective. Someone could just hop on a VPN or if a user has a router with a dynamic IP address, they can ban evade and bypass really really easily. A potential solution is the addition of HWID bans (Hardware Identification bans) this will ban anyone with the banned Motherboard ID (or any other part in the device) thus making it extremely harder for people to bypass a ban.
There is an offender in a server I moderate who has been ban evading for nearly THREE YEARS. It's gotten so ridiculous because there's very little we can do to stop him since each time we ban him he just joins back on another account with a different IP address. Hopefully a HWID banning solution will fix the issue.
