    Looks like the wind brought with it an extra load this morning.

    Your delete finger must be very tired.



    It’s pretty outrageous when the spam wipes out every valid post on the board. Where’s technology when you need it?



    We have technology. The state-of-the-art filter (Akismet) catches 99.9 percent of the spam posts. Still working on trying to stop the .1 from getting through. It is not a WSB-unique problem; other forums around the Web have it worse.

    We watch the admin end when awake and catch many pretty quick but at some point we do have to sleep for a few hours (I made one last round before taking a nap 3-5:30 am). Nothing has been “wiped out”; it just got temporarily pushed down.



    i think in this case the spammers have technology on their side..

    they find a weakness and exploit it…until it is fixed..

    my guess is that they have already found the next window to exploit long before some weary programmer proclaims success :(



    It sometimes seems as if all the best minds are put to the most perverse purposes…
