Bastardry Afoot

Hi kids.

We seem to be under some sort of spam attack. Please bear with me while I get it cleaned up and then blocked. In the mean time posting will be a little bit slow.

Update: Okay, I've deleted 130 spam comments and blocked the lowlife's IP address ( We won't be hearing from them again in a hurry!

Another 40-odd spams were blocked by MT Blacklist between the time I added it to the list and the time I blocked the IP. (About 15 minutes.)

Ooh. That's the guy I whacked this morning. Didn't think he might be tossing his load on other Munuvians too.

I put a global block on that IP because he was sending 20 comments at a time and dragging the whole server down.

It looks like it's a deliberate attack too, and not just spam. The words are mis-spelled and the email address keeps changing to avoid the black list.

He started on the Alliance blog, too--thank God for email comment notification! I banned that weasel asap. Typepad has a cool feature where ALL comments can be listed, and all I had to do was check the ones I wanted deleted.
