Clearly Thanet Star has come to the attention of the less pleasant elements of the Internet.
Given the aggressive nature of some of the comments that happen around here that really is saying something.
I would like to thank DataRealm for their fantastic support throughout this whole episode. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping to get this latest cyber-attack under control.
For the time being I have deactivated the spam log which means that if the AI did not like your comment then it will have been lost. This will give the server a lot more resources to serve requests even under unreasonable (abuse level) demand. Once the idiots who are doing this have given up I will reactivate it.
