Fresh bots

If you happened to encounter a “Comments off” message on a couple of posts yesterday, it was a temporary measure: they were getting hit with approximately three spam comments every two minutes. (Yes, folks, even I get hit once in a while.)

After shutting down comments on those two posts, I banned the three worst-offending IP addresses — there’s a plugin for that — and waited ten hours, then reopened comments. The swarm has yet to return.
