Spam SPAM spam Spam

Getting hit by a spambot that’s getting past most of the site filters. Again.

My Akismet filter (the spam filter built into wordpress) catches ~ 3000 spam comments a day. It misses about 50-100 a day. So, in other words, spambots are leaving a good 25 to 30 times as many comments as, you know, actual readers. I love the Internet. no, really, I *love* the Internet. Especially this guy, who decided the most reasonable solution to ending blogspam is for every blogger to write their own commenting software.

So the site security is going up to Defcon Orange. You may see some wackiness.
