Actually reading some of the info in my site control panel (Ensim) is useful ! I have found where the logs sit .. dozing away. So I grabbed one. Unzipped, the 24 hour access log is a shade over 4.5meg. And my grepping cherry is gone (nods to Gary for the link to a Windows prog) – it shows that for 24 hours from 06:30 on 4th of this month, I had 560 attempts at “wp-comments-reply.php” (which DOES NOT EXIST you thick twats) .I’ve not really looked for any other patterns. So…..560 is a lot ? Nothing at all and I have no clue yet just what they can do ? Talk to me :) Please.
