It took me an hour to clear the spam out of the comments this morning, perhaps because there were over 2,000 pieces of bounced spam in my churbuck.com inbox. I need to do something about the spammer who have hijacked my domain and are forging churbuck.com return addresses onto their crap. My ISP isn’t a lot of help.
I generally nuke about 200 spam comments from this blog every morning — mostly Asian thanks to tendency to blog about China every now and again. (Do not blog any Chinese characters unless you really really want to pick up a flood of double-byte character spam.)
Then my spam filter, Messagefire, crapped out, telling me it was nailed by disk quota issues, so I had to clear out 750 pieces of suspected spam over there — Messagefire is a good service, but it doesn’t deal with the flood of bounces that come from the spam attacks on my domain.
