I’ve got top running in a very large window, and I happened to glance over at it and suddenly every process on the screen was httpd. Then I looked up at my httpd/access log, and I see that this one IP hit this blog 50 times simultaneously, with two different referrer strings, but quite different browser ident strings. Ok, somebody is doing something stupid or something quite malicious.
iptables -I INPUT -s 22.214.171.124 -j DROP
Bye bye, asshole.
