As I write this, someone in La Jolla, CA has so far made
56 67 72 attempts to break into this site. It started last night, and except for a brief respite (I guess even nutbags need some sleep), has been continuing unabated for most of the morning. Whoever it is thinks they know something about cracking WordPress, because the same basic intrusion attempt (with minor variations) keeps being deployed.
It seems it’s just some lone La Jolla Loonie, because the various security plug-ins I’m running are all practically demanding I completely block his (never-changes) IP addy. Most people, upon learning some La Jolla Loonie, decamped on the University of California, San Diego’s network/campus (32.8807, -117.2359), was launching attacks on their server would notify the proper authorities….
LeatherPenguin most definitely ain’t “most people.” See, I admire tenacity, especially when it’s combined with idiocy; I nod my head and say “Bravo, La Jolla asshole! Bra-fucking-vo!” The La Jolla Loonie has made (checks log) 92! incursion attempts so far, using the same sad, failed technique.
That, my friends, is an admirably unique brand of insanity! Why should TC put a stop to his feverish fun?
Why the La Jolla Loonie has set his sights on me is kinda mystifying. I’ve only posted new material here twice in 2014, so it’s either something I wrote awhile back, or it is related to something I tossed up on Facebook and or Twitter. He started his assault yesterday at 7:14PM. I went back through everything I tossed up just before then, and can’t figure out what set the La Jolla Loonie into ersatz cyber-berserker mode.
