Spammers cost me 8 dollars

Posted by dumpendebat

Readers, I had to disable comments on all posts here. The spam festival (see below) got totally out of control, and I got something like 30,000 spam comments, only 318 of which were caught by my spam filters.

This caused my monthly bandwidth usage to soar: 63 GB for the month. My web-hosting provider is charging me $8.00 for that. So, no comments until I get this sorted out.
