Comments removed from post

Apologies for the lack of posts in the last couple of days but I have been busy with personal stuff (family illness, home moving hassles, etc.).

Two comments were left on this post earlier yesterday – I have removed them.

I rarely remove comments on this site unless they are spam or abusive. These were the first abusive posts on this site which I have removed.

The comments were left by someone purporting to be both David Jones and Alex Bunten – however the fact that both posts came within one minute of one another and from the same ip address leads me to believe that both comments came from the same person.

The ip address used was – this is the ip address of a UK ISP (Plus.com). That ip has now been banned on this site.

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 ( and that ip is now blocked by my .htaccess file.

Hopefully it will be another year before this happens again!

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