wanted to let everyone know about this and ask if there were any other
suggestions on how to best block this sort of thing.

there is only one option. Ban the person from fedorapeople, or at least
give them a warning. So many IRCDs have other ports open, so much so
that the DC block the DC I am in, was removed.
There should be a warning on the ssh login, giving a link maybe, as to
what is acceptable on people, if people abuse their privileges they get
suspended, until they explain why and what they were doing.
