Just for a while I’ve closed down the open comments access a bit (but not completely) until the splurge of spam has passed that started last night. For some reason, Akismet etc missed a lot. Hopefully, it’ll be back to it’s normal trappy self soon.
My sites went slow with all the hits, but as soon as I blocked open comments, wahay; they went faster!
They weren’t registration spam, just pure comments like so:
