New to PFsense - Ban a user

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb questions and I'd really like to know the answer to this. If you feel like replying with RTFM, please add the page number and I will. We have a frequent flyer(s) on our wifi who is using bittorrent to download copyrighted media and generating complaints from our ISP. I have their MACs and I want to ban them from our free Wifi. I know I could give them a reserved address and then create a rule that blocks their outbound traffic but is there another way of doing this? It just baffles me there isn't a more convenient way of doing this like the options for pass-through captive portal. Add a MAC and no more captive portal. Is this something that will be in 2.0 whenever that gets released?
Thanks in advance

"Easiest" method with pfsense.. Hmm
What if you have had a list of all torrent trackers that you implement as url-table or similar
and create block rule with tcp/udp to that destination.
Blocking with MAC-is something, what i haven't seen on pfsense. Can you check if that is supported at your wireless?

Perhaps you could use Layer7 filtering and create a rule for blocking bittorrent.
FIREWALL -> TRAFFIC SHAPER -> LAYER7
and then you can chose "bittorrent" as protocol. Didn't use this in the past butr I think you can create a Shaper-Rule which allows/denys bittorrent protocols and then you can put this shaper rule in firewall rules and block bittorrent for all wifi users.
