Anyone have any ideas where all this crap traffic is coming from?

I'd ask how it got past spam filters but it's trivial, compared to writing code that recognizes anti-spam measures, to pay some poor schmuk a couple bucks an hour in some country that doesn't have all that great an economy to sit and linkbomb.

It's because of the recent PHPBB upgrade I made for the new website.
Working to restore the proper spam filters.
Forums are clean for the emoment.

Rob.

This quite clearly demonstrates WHY we need spam filters. The entire front page of this subforum filled with spam.


It made me sad.
