Just noticed a note from drdave when I checked into Spam Karma here. SK has only had the very rarest of errors so it’s set to autokill every 4 hours. I’ve no idea why I picked that time scale ….. 49 spams it had caught. That’s a lot considering that Bad-Behaviour is also protecting this site. So I have increased the meaness factor of SK2 – hopefully it’ll still smile on real people. (And yes, I am perfectly aware of other solutions, but I am also even more aware that the spammers have beaten everything yet thrown at them and I don’t see that changing just yet. They are better funded.)
Edit: The spammers are pointing their code at a single post then throwing 18 spams at it in about 14 minutes – in alphabetical order (except for ‘hgh’ which is last …). The third of these little waves is part way through – not that you’d know from your side.
Edit again: IP 126.96.36.199 is worth a few hours of blocking.
