You have several choices:

1) Bow to the inevitable and allow it.

2) Publicise prominently your policy against it and as soon as
   you catch someone doing it, kick them off very publicly.

An administrative solution will be better than a technical one when you
have users smart enough to look for ways around technical solutions.
