    Opened up my "alert" list this morning. 5 out of 8 were useless spam bots.

    Watxhout, we're being attacked! Done everything I can to try to keep all of them out but some will always slip in. All removed for now.

    So it occurs to me that every spam bot is picking New York as where they are from. Anyway to auto ban anyone who picks that?
