The spam-master seems to be pulling ahead in our little contest. I’ve been able to limit the spam to tens per day (down from hundreds per day at the peak). And the tag moderation update to my comments package means that it isn’t getting a single link out of me. But it is forcing me to spend more time cleaning this site then it spends defacing it. Advantage Comment Spam.
But the game is not over yet. And my next counter measure is a doozy.
