    spammers are all over this site.

    Has anyone seen how many new members there are and the birthdays and all the f-ed up names. Plus some of the post. Looks like they are all zooming in on this site.

    Notice how few are ever able to make a post. You're welcome!

    I'm pruning out the users that never confirmed their email address or made a post. It's over a thousand, 300 of which were last week. Time to add more Jeep related questions to the registration page!

    Looks like I'll ban Hong-Kong while I'm at it.

    All done. I blasted about 10,000 users, blocked 100 or so IP addresses, and registration now requires some knowledge about Jeep motors (or at least Google) so automated signup is stopped.

    I can't imagine why they picked this little site, but it's definitely been targeted by some kind of bot, but it's from dozens of countries. Very strange.

    I Spam - O - Rama their ass to Overkill, faster than they can say "CHOP SUEY!" They are then applied in a thin layer over the Parkway East, to help dissolve any ice or snow on the road...
