Nothing more entertaining

Than some butthurt dumbass trying to spam your mail account trying to call you out for your "40 years of programming", not realizing they're hitting the honey pot and were banned behind the scenes hours ago, and now are likely getting the "mail per day exceeded" warning. Their butthurt and personal insecurity is laughable.

Comedy gold. Nice try though, even if it is based on nonsensical assumptions.

Can't even hit me hard enough with their silly little Mac to impact performance.

I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

Hi there Jason,

I am, as you are probably aware, in my dotage and after
reading your post thoroughly two or three times, remain
totally in the dark as to it's inner meaning(s).  ???

Would it be at all possible for you to bring this  poor old
sod gently back into the light?  :)

Regards,

Someone in Virginia I must have "offended" somehow (there's a shocker) with a Mac -- see the UA string above -- decided to spam me with the message "40 years of programming and you can't even secure your form" via my contact form.

Thing is it is secure, the first three of their messages were stored, the next 3000 were ignored but logged by count, and their IP address eventually triggered a IP level ban on the form, and possibly site-wide. In my own dotage, I seem to have forgotten which I set up... both?

I think the limit for IP level ban is 0x1000 I should probably drop that to 0x0100.

Laugh is their little Intel Mac slogging away trying to DDOS or otherwise harm things couldn't keep up with the slice of four Ryzen cores we recently were moved to.

It's actually part of the strategy is to let these bots THINK they're working as part of the honeypot. Make them waste their time, not mine.

Hi there Jason,

Let's see if I have now got it right. You, heaven forbid, somehow
offended a Virginian Mac owner by degenerating their overpriced
computer. They in return tried to sabotage your more powerful
equipment by making 3000 form submissions in the hope that it
would create  a DDOS or some other situation. Fortunately for you
but unknown by them, their puny efforts were scuppered at the
third submission.

This result would obviously be amusing for you and others, myself
included, but  possibly not so for  Mac users.
