...due to Chinese spammers.

They still look open to me.

Consider using a ReCAPTCHA to filter out spam bots?

OK, so this is a trick to get more comments?

I guess that's the latest trick for propping up the Chinese economy.

Let me rephrase that... "comments closed on those comment threads being targeted."

If they hit this one, I'll have to close this on as well.

The problem with Chinese comment spam is the same as with Chinese food. A little never fills your threads up, the spammers keep trying to add more.

Impressed to find Keith Nolan contributing comments. A site that draws his attention can take some pride in it. Anyone who hasn't read at least a couple of his numerous Vietnam books should get off the web for a while and hit the library (or buy 'em at Amazon.)

Regarding captured Iranian weaponry etc., how come Bush, who we're told can manufacture any misleading evidence he needs, and is capable of bringing the WTC down and shifting the blame to Muslims, etc. etc., forgot to plant convincing evidence of WMDs in Iraq? I suppose the point might have escaped his attention, but surely not Rove's or Cheney's?

This should fix it. A link to all Chinese an Korean net blocks. Just filter them out.
