Hey, I haven't been blogging often enough at times, particularly in the last week.
We've had a surge of traffic, one day probably hitting 'round twenty seven million page views or so.
With that, and maybe the full moon, we had a lot more abuse situations, and since I handle most of them, well, I seem to be getting a little cranky, or crankier than usual.
For example, we had a coupla vicious spam attacks, from Romania, with a forged From address from us. Scammers from Nigeria and Romania have been particularly persistent, and wer'e blocking ISPs from both countries. That a draconian solution which I hate… and will have to do more of.
There's also a certain amount of bickering, particularly in Washington DC raves and rants, focusing on the "3pm roundup". I don't know what to make of that.
It looks like I will get some relief on that soon, but until then, sorry if I get cranky. I've been doing this too long, and need to be able to delegate more.
