    @OP: Try contacting your ISP and asking them politely if they can change your IP address?

    You could use tor browser (https://www.torproject.org/) or boot from tails (https://tails.boum.org/) either in a VM or from USB/CD. If you do this you will never get the same IP twice - in fact it will generally appear to be in a completely different country. TOR network is not fast but it would certainly work for you if you are only chatting not downloading.

    The admin does not know what they are talking about. I would find another site to go to. Not worth dealing with an admin who does not know how to properly do their job. They are probably blocking the whole block of IP's. If you are using some kind of IP masking site. They could also be blocking out that site block of IP's.

    Pretty sure broe23 is right. They're blocking the whole subnet, not just an IP. The only way you would have the same IP is if you are behind a NAT device, the same NAT device that the offending user is behind.

    Let me bring this up as well;
    You don't say how you are connected to the Internet. If you're using a hotspot, then you would be behind a NAT device that might well be shared with the aforementioned offending user. Also, if it's your connection, is there any chance this user is connecting via your connection ?? I'd look into that as well. There's a lot worse that this user could do and if it's your Internet connection, it could lead to all sorts of problems.

    Meaning password protect your stuff (router, for example)!
