Spammers suck. I spent a good amount of time getting down and dirty with the database. The good: got rid of all sorts of spam crap and implemented a change on the server that will hopefully stop it from happening again. I've watched the server logs a bit and I am seeing evidence of lots of spam IPs getting routed to the host 404 page which makes me very happy. The bad: took me a full 24 hours to convince the host provider to look at my issue closely enough to remove the hold they had.

So - let's hope this was good enough.

Good to know. For a while there I thought we'd been hacked.
