We had a case like that at MSF where a user refused to register.  We 
warned him via the site, and when he would not stop, we simply blocked 
his MAC address at the router.  He was not using a portable, so it was 
easy to detect and fix.  By the time we stopped him, he was 30% of our 
customer base.
