I got a pile of spam from some asshat—”firstname.lastname@example.org”, at 22.214.171.124—linking to a bunch of shitty epinions and other ad sites today. This was on top of two other douchebags who tried to game my site to link back to someplace else earlier in the day. Stephen had written something a few weeks back about installing a plugin for MT called spamlookup, which promises to help screen comments whenever the shit starts flying. I don’t use Trackbacks, which is one reason, I think, that I haven’t been hit harder in the past, but I guess it’s only a matter of time for everything. I’ll report back when I see some results (if any.)
Update: I got eighteen more hits from this same dick over the course of the last 12 hours, from varying IP addresses. Spamlookup only caught one, which looked different from the rest.
