Comment spam run last night

Apologies to anyone who subscribed to comments on this site and was emailed the spam comments which hit this site last night.

The site was hit by over 80 spams overnight – the first spam run to make it through my anti spam defences in over a year.

Curiously, all the spams came from a single ip address (71.57.133.162) and that ip is now blocked by my .htaccess file.

Hopefully it will be another year before this happens again!

UPDATE:
I see this spammer also visited the Spamhuntress – what a twit! Go get him Ann!
