Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
I was poking around the logs today, and saw that of the 500 comments that were attempted on the blog yesterday 0 of them were actual people, and the blog successfully marked all of them as spam, and didn't bother asking me to verify that. I wonder how long that will last.
I regularly see spammers hiring programmers on some job websites that I use, and some of the code that the spammer's use is quite good, so I always need to stay on top of what they are doing.
There have been 112,572 attempted comments on this blog in the last 30 days. And I suppose that doesn't even count the one that were blocked by the firewall that repeatedly made comments. I don't have separated logs for those blocks, but just on a server basis. 42,837 IP addresses were blocked in the last month for making frequent comments on the blogs.
Those numbers are pretty incredible, if you think about it - they are just for one blog and server out of the millions of blogs and servers on the internet.
