    Stupid spambots

    All - well, I have never really added in protection for spam bots, this week I got a kick in the ass to do so. Dreamhost shut us down for a bit because our server load was extremely high and was based on an incredible amount of spambot registrations. So, I have installed a few add ons and done some IP blocking that will hopefully minimize the impact. We've been having sporadic reboots lately too, so hopefully this will tame that too.
    Rain Rain Go Away,
    So I can ride another day.
    Remember when sex was safe, and motorcycles were dangerous?

    My post count in no way contributed to this, although business was brisk in the BBO bar.
