This is a fairly new blog and one that hasn’t been utilized on a regular basis (not the case anymore!), but even so it would appear that the spambots haven’t got the memo. While I let the blog lag behind as a result of my move to OK, the spambots went on something of a rampage. I can’t recall the exact number of posts I deleted yesterday, but my spam filters blocked somewhere in the neighborhood of 65k spam messages.
As some of you have noticed quite a few of them still managed to go through (several hundred) and that was with multiple layers of protection. There should be a mandatory captcha up that is more difficult to penetrate than my initial captcha program so hopefully that helps out. I can’t help but wonder though how much spam a website or blog gets that receives tens of thousands of unique visitors per day. I can only assume it would be in the millions of potential posts.
