This is new -- trackback spam

Posted on February 9, 2005

Well now, the comment spam problem is apparently contained for now (I still get a lot of it but it doesn’t get posted due to my more or less rigid comment policy) but now I’m getting something I’ve never gotten before: trackback spam!

This is something I’ve never had before. Comment spam I’ve had by the bucketful but even though I’ve heard a lot about trackback-spam problems I’ve never had it happen to me until quite recently.

Unfortunately MT-Blacklist isn’t quite as good at handling trackback spam as it is with plain comment spam, but it’ll get there eventually, for sure.

What a sad little world we live in.
