Spam attack

Posted Saturday July 5, 2008 by Nick Caldwell in |

I’m putting the site on comments moderation for the time being as we’re experiencing a sustained spam attack on an older post. I’ve deleted the existing spam comments and banned the IP addresses associated with those comments. It looks like the scum-sucking spam merchants have learned too much about Textpattern. I’ll be investigating our options for spam-blocking plugins over the next couple of days. I like the idea of an unencumbered public forum, which is why this site hasn’t defaulted to moderation until now. But spam is why we can’t have nice things.
