Am I the only one being hammered by comment spam all of a sudden?
Some idiot (184.108.40.206) in China has been inundating my blog with ridiculous comments and links to unrelated Chinese sites. I have had to moderate all comments. It seems the spammer is automating the attack, presumably using a web service that allows him or her to post comments to posts that are closed for comments. Presumably that’s a bug in the .Text server.
Tracing the IP address doesn’t give me much other than it appears to come from China. I love the fact that commenting is so easy with .Text but it sure opens things up for abuse.
I just noticed another blogger complaining. At least I'm not alone.
