Yeah, I can fix it in 2 commands. Of course, I have to sleep sometime -
so, it's nice if you can revert the mainpage and the SOC page since they
are getting alot of traffic now. We've got a new spammer friend with a
big botnet -- he's been spamming us 3-4 times/day for a few days. But
I've added a couple more filters, so maybe that will be enough to get
him to move on. These guys always give up, sometimes it just takes a
few days to convince them...
