Ah, the joys of self-hosting — you now go head-to-head with spambots directly. When it was just a few comments here and there, I didn’t mind since they were easy enough to just weed out as time allowed. I knew there were more of them milling about, but it didn’t seem worth the hassle to get anything big to handle them — kinda like baby roaches. But then last night one of them tried to change my password, so now measures have been taken.
This is directed at you, evil little spambots. We’ve got an eye on you. Proceed at your own risk. 😛
