About 4 or 5 times this morning some idiots decided to comment spam me at a rate of about 30 comments / second. Took me a while to track down what they were doing, considering that they were blacklisted so the comments never showed up.
I turned off the commenting script for right now, until I have a chance to track down the IPs and block them at the apache level. (It looks like all of the comment spam was coming from a handful of IPs repeatedly)
Their activities caused a number of timeouts for other Thingamabox hosts as well…sorry ‘bout that everyone!
