Holy Christ! For the last 45 minutes or so The House has been under a massive spam attack.
At least 40 spams a minute (at least those that were registering) overwhelmed my spam filter. This caused the site to freeze up like a side of beef in a Kansas City meat locker. And since my little hosting company can’t handle that kind of traffic anyway, chances are you probably were unable to break through and access the site.
These spam attacks are getting worse. Many of you were kind enough to offer suggestions the last time this happened and I actually blacklisted about 80 IP’s. But the bots are clever little devils. They just keep changing up on me, laughing at my weak and pathetic attempts to keep them from filling up my spam queue.
May the fleas of a thousand camels infect the crotches of spammer’s first born. And may they not have the satisfaction to itch.
