Hate to do it, but comment registration will be required starting tomorrow or Thursday.
The comment spambots crashed the site this morning, and only the quick ministrations of Stacy Tabb got everything working again before most people noticed. It’s my understanding that the spambot situation will get worse, so VP is succumbing to the inevitable.
I’m not sure which form of registration we’ll be using, but it ought to be fairly painless.
UPDATE: It looks like Instapundit has crashed, too – and Glenn doesn’t even have comments. Earlier, Samizdata had the same problem I did. Makes you wonder if HostMatters is suffering an organized attack.
