A year ago, the blog collapsed under the weight of tens of thousands of spam posts per day. All my old posts are lost beyond that event horizon. I rebooted with wordpress and it’s been good to me. Askimet and user registration have blocked almost everything and blog traffic is way down (a good thing when 99.99% of your previous traffic was spam).
Today, someone tried to register as CHEAP-VIAGRA-PORN. Um, yeah.
