Hiccups

Sorry about the hiccups earlier - incoming DDoS from Turkey (again) and I accidentally screwed up the networking while blocking it.

3 So it's basically just a spambot that went crazy.

4 Don't think so.  It's not trying to post anything, it's just opening huge numbers of HTTP connections from lots of different IP addresses, almost all of them in Turkey.  And always to the same URL.

Place I work for finally gave up - we've got all of Turkey blocked from the server. Too many different attacks - hack attempts, spam attempts, take-down attempts, etc. We've got one site that does tours of Israel. They targeted that one a LOT. We got tired. Turkey is no longer welcome. Luckily, 99% of our sites are locally oriented (in the US) so except for a few possible tourists visiting Turkey and wanting to visit one of our sites, we aren't really blocking anyone who would have any legitimate interest.

6 I haven't had any trouble from Turkey, but on more than one occasion I've given serious thought to blocking all of Russia and Ukraine.

10 I use Kaspersky for anti-virus, another good thing out of Russia. But we really have had more trouble from Turkey than all the other countries combined.
