Spam Attack/Slight Change in Comment Settings


I got hit with a major blast of spam attacks a few days ago - look at this:


That spike represents about 6 times the average traffic.

Two posts in particular received thousands of hits along with a lot of accompanying junk comments advertising all kinds of garbage. I killed their comment sections after awakening in the morning to an inbox full of spam comment notifications.

So... that's the end of the experiment with totally open commenting I started a month or so ago. I'm going to have to stop doing that.

That's not to say I tightened it all the way up. You can still comment anonymously but only with word recognition.


Sorry for any inconvenience the change might cause. If it's really a pain, let me know - maybe I can make further tweaks.

Now back to gardening.
