Comment Spamming

by Henry on October 12, 2003

If you’ve been hit in the last couple of the days by pornspam in your comments, you’re not alone; Crooked Timber has been hit too, as have many other sites. If you’re a MT person, the IP address to block for this latest wave is 209.210.176. *and make sure to include the period at the end.* Thanks to “Teresa Nielsen Hayden”:http://www.nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/ for the heads-up – and check her site for further updates and breaking news. “MT Blacklist”:http://www.jayallen.org/journey/2003/10/mtblacklist_monday_hell_or_high_water should be out tomorrow; if it works as advertised, it should help mitigate the problem.

I must be some total loser. I mostly get insurance spam in my blog comments.

I really appreciate this heads up. Thank you so much. How would one find out the IP addresses of spammers? I confess to a most bitter, immutable loathing of spammers. Sm’ert spammim!*
