Have you noticed the FLOG acting a little oddly recently — that is, more odd than the usual assortment of posts by strange people like me? It’s not your imagination. We have not started running ads, and especially not for on-line casinos and fake pharmaceutical sales.
The FLOG has grown rapidly in the last year, and we average about 5,000 “unique visitors” a week. One of the prices of our higher readership is that we become more attractive to cybercriminals and spammers. Ordinarily we take care of this invisibly, behind the scenes, but in the last few days we have been hit with automated and large-scale attacks by a Russian spammer. We think it’s cleaned up now, and the problem contained. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
