Comments should be not available for anyone other than the site owner, so should cut down on the spammers who then attract the ddos bots.
There is one user on this site, anything of value is not hosted here, the owner is the only user, all comments not made on the ip address of the owner are sent to pending, another plugin deals with the naff comments with a 99.98% accuracy rate: 21,768 spam comments that I never got to see in August 2015 and nor did anyone else 🙂
Given up caring who is trying to log in, so any attempt to login that I notice gets a permanent block from the site 🙂
Permanently block all temporarily blocked IP addresses
