Ugh, that title is terrible. Sorry.
I just wanted to report that over the last 24 hours, Marty Blog got slammed with over 100 comment spam messages. You didn’t see any of them, thanks to WordPress Hashcash. Instead, I got to privately view them all (at one point I was getting about one spam comment a minute), and I deleted every last one of them. I also deleted a post which I think was the catalyst for all of them, a generic comment made on my old post about the Spore Creature Creator. It’s funny how whenever I post about more popular games at the time, the blog starts getting hit with a temporary surge of spam.
In any case, the spam comments have since slowed down, and I’ve only had one or two to delete all day. It seems all is well once again.
Oh, and I also picked up Fable 2 on my lunch hour today. A bunch of good reviews (and an undying love for the original game) can go a long way I suppose. I’ll report on that later once I get a chance to play it.
