Gah. This will come off sounding like an advertisement but I finally
remembered that I installed the WP-Gatekeeper 8 days ago, so perhaps
this isn't an unexpected result. Sorry for the false hope about less
comment spam. I think I'll mod the Gatekeeper to keep track of how many
failed validations its seen so I can keep more abreast of the real activity.
