Thanks Gérard,

I was actually working on the harness at the time and the hosting data  
center apparently went completely offline for a little while (it  
wasn't me, I swear it).

The problem then when it came back online is that the filtering rules  
at the firewall don't persist across a reboot (something I'm going to  
fix tomorrow) and the spam harvester bots that have been attacking us  
started getting through. Once I was able to reset the filtering rules  
we were back in business. (The harness has a feature to automatically  
detect bad spider behavior and turn on filtering by ip at the  
firewall, there are currently 175 ip addresses being blocked. We've  
seen bad behavior from 245 different addresses so far...)
