Small status update: in the last weeks I had repeated bursts of
registrations from that IP. It looks like the ISP doesn't react or care
(they created a ticket and claimed the user has to fix the problem
within 72h, nothing changed). Blacklisted it now.

Ideally, both. Also check previous registrations from either IP and
delete them as well.
