interesting, as the same thing happened here on geeklog.net a few days ago. Spam-X caught all the spam, though.
Can you please email
me the following information:
- The username of the spammer
- The user's email adddress (or at least a recognizable part of it)
- The date when that user registered
- The IP address the spam came from
And the next time something like this happens, you may want to use Spam-X's "Mass Delete" module, which would have deleted all the comments easily and
fixed the comment counter.
I seem to remember that Tom Willet wrote a script to fix the comment counter - try searching for it ...
