Zardoz? That wonderful movie with Sean Connery?

Is it my imagination, or did your post on spamming just get... spammed?

Might look like that, but what I see when the spammers hit are about a dozen or so similar posts lobbed deep into the archives. I weed them right away but it is a chore, even with MT-blacklist.

I let the one above go because it was the only post and it seems to be, on the surface, a manual entry. A macro perhaps but manual.

I'm upgrading the software over the next week and will get a better handle on spam after that.
