Spam Gone Wild!


Not sure what’s going on tonight, but the spammers have been hitting me crazy hard tonight.  The funny thing is that Akismet (first line of defense) isn’t catching them all.  I’m sure there’ve been ones that haven’t been caught by Akismet, that have magic words that cause them to magically go away (second line of defense).  But there’ve been about 50 that have made it into moderation (third line of defense) that I’ve had to deal with directly.

Dunno how Akismet does its thing, but it seems there must something new and/or different about these that it’s not seeing.  Oh well — that’s why I have so many layers to my spam trapping.  One is simply not enough!
