Might I suggest an experiment? Presumably your system logs the poster’s IP address.
As well as automating abuse flags (several posts in a row is a good one) manual flagging should be applied to the messages.
Now, do not remove abusive messages. Make them visible if they are ok or they come from the current IP address. The result – abusers can see their comments but others cannot.
Now watch what happens when, however hard they try, they are ignored.
I had a lot of fun with this one!

Dette er jo glimrende? Men vent litt – kanskje det er derfor ingen kommenterer mine kommentarer…?
