    Block the IPs that it is coming from would be the easiest.

    If you have root access.
    This will block total access to your server.

    ### replace xxxx with the ip # you wish to block ###

    /sbin/iptables -I INPUT 1 -s xxxx -j DROP

    ###after the above...run this one..to make them stick###
    ##otherwise..they will clear at reboot or restart of iptables##

    iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables

    If his being spam bombed blocking a single ip will do nothing. Chances are, his using many ips to bomb the guy.
