Who the f*ck is "Ed"?

Not in a very good mood. To be honest, I'm quite pissed.

Seems there's an Asian guy out there named "Ed" who's developped a parser that can lift the characters off of Blogger's word verification generator for posting comments. Result? I've just spent the better part of an hour deleting eighty-plus comments linking to porn sites. How do I know it was a parser? Simple, all eighty-two comments were posted within 10 minutes.

So now I have to activate comment moderation. Sorry, it sucks, but I don't want to have to go through this crap again.

Anybody else run into this problem, or am I the only lucky bastard out here?

I got nailed with it as well. I fought with him one morning before work before I ran out of time and finally just kicked in comment moderation. I'm usually glued to my email, so I was kinda having fun with it. Seconds after he posted I had it deleted from my site. I know that several other bike blogs got nailed with it as well. Sorry man.

Ed was all over the place. Seems to have passed by, now.
