Spam's Quiet on the Western Front

I hope this is the last on MLX spam for a while. I'd rather be writing code for adding features to it than trying to fortify the moat.

And I guess my finger pointing at domain registrars was off base as pointed out by some comments earlier today. Somebody out there must be responsible.

My hourly spammer's last submission was about 8 hours ago. Maybe they have homework to work on. Or they figured out the futility (in my dreams) or they are reloading for a different tact. Or picking other victims. One should never be confident they have plugged every hole.

In a way it was a learning experience. I found some new ways to create activity logs, tools to display and add functionality to them, some some cool thinks about hashes.

Update Oct 4:: They are back. Good morning spammers....
