First Defense Against Spam: Victim of it’s own success

My WordPress plugin AVH First Defense Against Spam is a victim of it’s own success. Currently the owner of Stop Forum Spam has been banning WordPress users because of the amount of traffic certain blogs running my plugin has been creating.
I have had a quick chat with the owner of Stop Forum Spam and I’ll make some changes to the plugin which will hopefully relief their server been pounded by certain websites.
Until then I have to ask people to stop using Stop Forum Spam for checking.

I do apologize to Stop Forum Spam for this problem and am currently working on the situation.

  • Our server loads have dropped to normal levels, thanks 🙂

    All we need now is for the rest of the blogs to upgrade, the ones that hit us 5000-6000 times every couple of hours.
