Spammers. This site gets thousands of spam post attempts every day but my spam filter had kept 99% of the posts off the site. Clearly they broke through the protections last night. I'll keep an eye on it and, if necessary, upgrade the defences here.

Appreciate the great, and sometimes very trying and time consuming, work you do for this site.

Thank you. Glad it's all cleaned up. And my anti-virus also got a good workout too because I didn't know if it was you, me or both of us. All in favor of capital punishment for certain classes of cyber crime raise your hand. Raise both hands if you'd like to include robo-dialers.
