    I've banned those accounts and IP addresses, deleted the comments and journal entries, and -- though I don't think this was being done -- turned on captchas (images with letters to verify you're a human) for account creation to help prevent new account robo-creation.

    As always, thanks, and let me know if you see more of this.
    • Unfortunately banning is getting harder. Some comment spammers are now using networks of compromised machines just like the e-mail spammers. Monday I had to deal with a comment spammer who had posted 64 comments from 58 different IP addresses all over the world, starting at 1 comment every 8 minutes and gradually accelerating until they were posting every 45 seconds. Fortunately they went away within a few minutes after I deleted the comments and enabled moderation.
