Spam Wars

Dealing with spam in email is mostly quick and easy. And for the most part its not that much harder to delete them from blogs or flickr or youtube. But fuck-a-duck, when you are trying to use all these things, when you even have multiple blogs, it sucks the life right out of you.

Just imagine...

All the blogs on LISHost! You can't even imagine how much they're hit by spammers. It's actually worse dealing with the blog spammers than the email spammers. The vast majority of POST requests that come in are spam.mod_security helps alot, and I've written a couple scripts that watch for suspicious IPs and firewall them.

I sympathize, I do. But I would rather face one large task then a group of smallers ones, all basically the same, but all done just a bit differently.
