I’ve been simply bombarded by spam recently – I had over 3,000 comments in the last 24 hours – none of them genuine. This blog’s pretty low profile and I haven’t spent much time looking after it but it’s up there to help anyone who’s interested. If you arrive here and find anything interesting please comment good, bad or indifferent, it’ll be such a refreshing change.

I normally take spam comments on a site as a compliment, almost as if the site is important enough for the spammers to start having a go.
However, 3000 comments is going overboard somewhat! I wonder what happened to make them target your blog like that? Roll of a virtual dice?


Thanks Phil, you may be right. MediaTemple got hacked the other week, and all the index pages on my server went down the toilet. Time to back everything up I think.
