We hope it works. We got a number of these gibberish messages on the Hummer Exchange in a short period of time. The same gibberish has appeared every once in awhile on another web site I run.

Fortunately, these attacks seem to be very unsophisticated. I used the popular reCaptcha software on the other site, and that stopped it, but users complained that the words were too hard to read. This one is much easier for users, and hopefully these particular spammers don't have more sophisticated tools.

While the site was down, I took the opportunity to pretty it up a little - I had already done that on the other site, so it didn't take too long.

Keep your fingers crossed!
