Well I feel safer having implemented my blog-spam defense perimeter but apparently there are still some pesky cockroaches sniffing around the edges.

Here is another one for those keeping their blog spam filters up to date:

IP Address: 219.141.115.94
Name: gifts
Email Address: gifts-catalog@yahoo.com

add to the banned domains:
lstor(dot)com

with a variety of un=related crap attempted to shove as link in my blog.

You can pretty much spot the spam when your email notice arrives with NOT a URL referencing an entry in your blog, but one featuring a link to the MT comments script, e.g.:

http://jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/cgi-bin/mt/mt-comments.cgi?entry_id=xxx

Spammers. They make a squishy, crunchy noise when you slam your foot down on ’em.
