Could I have a show of hands from bloggers who are currently experiencing issues with their hosts because of nasty spammers?
I know Joz and I are on the outs with our current webhosts because of spam attacks. My ever helpful team that set up my blog (fellow metblogger Travis from Vancouver) has been disabling portions of my site and if this keeps going I’m going to lose the distinction of being called a blog pretty soon (comments are next on the list). Even though my site has been fending of the actual spam from getting onto my site, it means that the creepy buggers have been crawling and probing my system for vulnerabilities and that’s causing server overloads.
Is anyone else having troubles with this stuff? Is it web-wide and where I do I join up to fight these destructive forces?
