Just moments ago my site reported that an IP Address had been banned due to excessive comments in the last 200 seconds. One can only assume that this is an automatic spam attack.
For those of you running sites that would like to avoid this, here are the details of the IP that attacked over the page, as well as listings from various Spam databases for the attacker.
The following results are for the IP Address 18.104.22.168 which traced through DNS Stuff gave this…

* SpamCop users have reported system as a source of spam about 10 times in the past week
Additional potential problems
(these factors do not directly result in spamcop listing)
DNS error: 184.108.40.206 has no reverse dns
Because of the above problems, express-delisting is not available
In the past 6.1 days, it has been listed 3 times for a total of 4.1 days
My apologies if you are running through that range of addresses and are a legitimate user. I would suggest either changing host or complaining directly to them.
