NOTE TO REGISTERED READERS ABOUT BLOG DEFENSES AND BANNING

alligatorsWe installed some new defensive tools on the blog to protect from spammers and other vile twisted souls. I’ve been watching the logs of nefarious activity.

Wow.

I just strengthened the defensive perimeter so that failed attempts to log in will result in banning and being locked out for up to a month automatically (rather than minutes) or, under certain circumstances even permanently.

I realize that some innocent people might get caught in the moat and that the alligators (permitted to eat meat even on Fridays of Lent) will get you.

If you have a problem logging in and wind up getting banned, drop me a note.

I can whitelist specific IP addresses.

Furthermore, it is a sad fact that I have to do this.  It is also sad that I have had to tighten up the combox permissions.  I don’t want this place to look anything like the slimy fever swamp at Fishwrap or Crux.
