The Persistence of Gutter Slime

October 4th, 2004

The tactic of using .htaccess to shut out spammers has been widely successful, but not entirely. One spammer has somehow gotten through the block, and has attempted to spam this site 534 times in the past one week. Persistent little cockroach. Thank goodness for MT Blacklist.

I still haven’t found a way to deal with the other scumwads, namely referral spammers. Tried to do an htaccess script on them as well, blocking access to anyone coming from a certain URL, but for some reason the script made the site invisible to me, and I know I didn’t use keywords that are likely to be in my ISP’s URL. Anyone know about what to do about these spammers?
