02:57 mwn3d mikemol: did you make a bot to do all those blocks or are you gonna need a new mouse by the end of this?
02:57 mikemol mwn3d: I already hate this mouse....
02:57 mikemol Actually, I kinda cheated.
02:58 mwn3d Need some donations for a new mouse? :p
02:58 mikemol I middle-clicked each user in the create log. Then I used Ctrl-tab, perform step 1, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, perform step 2, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat...
02:59 mikemol Wound up rather easy.
02:59 mikemol If a user was already blocked, Ctrl-W to close the tab. If the user had created a non-spam contribution, Ctrl-W to close the tab.
03:00 mikemol By the time I got to the block-user step, all that was left were users whose accounts were created during the spam flood, matched patterns, and hadn't done a single edit.
03:00 mikemol (Those which had already spammed were already blocked...)
03:00 mikemol To be fair to the fact that there's no proof a given account is spam, I only blocked for one week...
03:01 mikemol But at least this is enough for me to easily pull down the IPs from the bans and look for bad subnets I can block at the edge.
03:14 mikemol Whew!
03:14 mikemol Check out those close-proximity blocked addresses!
03:17 mikemol It looks like there's a Comcast business class /26 that's in pretty bad shape.
03:18 mikemol I say /26, as it starts at .129 and ends at .167 ... I presume whoever is assigned that range by Comcast is actually using the addresses that aren't acting as spam sources.

03:47 mikemol OK, we'll see how long it's going to take the spammers to get back in, now...
03:47 * mikemol added a couple DNSBLs.
03:48 mikemol And blocked a bad /24 and a bad /16 at the edge.
04:01 nonon_ joined #rosettacode
04:10 mikemol Didn't take terribly long.
04:11 mikemol I don't think we're going to see spam rates like we saw for the last couple days for a while, though.
04:18 mwn3d Yeah...for lack of a better word that was a shitton of blocks
04:19 mwn3d I can't imagine that for our little corner of the internet they have enough dedication to have more than that
