They're not posting yet, so that's good. I'd try disabling them, but I bet CRZ does something in SQL to delete them all anyway.

They started posting.
So is this an actual individual action, or did someone figure out how to get their bots to attack us?

Now that the attack has slowed enough that I can actually load pages, I started banning individual accounts manually in hopes of slowing things a bit further so that legitimate users can access the site. We'll see if this lasts.

I assume CRZ or Guru will have a way of cleaning up the spam posts, removing the accounts, and generally fixing stuff more easily and thoroughly than that, but neither one appears to be online at the moment.

Oh, sorry! I was asleep.

We'll hold off on new registrations for a while, I guess.

Thanks... I managed to whack about 15 or 20 of 'em before I had to go to work. I just settled for disabling the accounts because I figured the Fearless Liters would have a better way to clean up after them.

Nah, it's fine. The 6-7 and 3-4 are just bunced up under the 5 and 2. Desk space is finite.

Not kidding, I'm not used to seeing people playing five columns instead of seven.

Oh yeah, that aspect of this is totally fucked, finite desk or no finite desk.

My Grandfather used to say the only thing he'd want if he found himself on a deserted island would be a deck of cards; he contended that within minutes of starting a game of solitaire someone would be along to suggest moves...
