A few weeks ago someone had asked to purchase iishacks.com from me. When I declined, he became quite irate. Granted the price was good, but money really doesn’t do it for me. After all, Sysadmins aren’t in it for the money…
Immediately after I declined, I started getting hundreds of spam messages, then thousands, then millions. In the last few weeks I’ve gone from a couple spam messages to hundreds of thousands per day.
So the plan is to track where the messages are coming from, and then get him back. Hope he’s listening.
On a side note, I’m quite impressed WordPress and MySQL were able to handle the load. I mean, it is a Windows Server!
