This would mean only one user behind a proxy server could have a username. Not a good solution since some ISPs use proxies for many users in an area. Also means multiple users in one household would not be possible even if they are individual legitimate users. Overall this would exclude valid users unfairly and do little to stop spammers and shills.

And then what if Voat had a ban on those particular IP ranges?

What problem would that solve? Spammers and shills will simply move to another IP address. This only hurts legitimate users who don't cause problems. You're advocating the same kind of "solution" as the gun control freaks. Criminals will still have guns but law abiding citizens will have to jump through hoops for their guaranteed 2A rights. IP restrictions and gun control laws are just plain useless at solving the real problems.
