Comment and Trackback Spam

This topic needs it's own category, as it seems the majority of my posts the last couple weeks have been on comment and trackback spam.

SCO readers, we're getting pummeled. Thanks to Jack Lewis, I see that we're not alone.

I just spent an hour deleting over 120 comments (still haven't got to the trackback) that are either gambling or porn related. When I got done, I found another dozen comments had come in while I was deleting. Unbelievable. It makes me want to bring back the iron maiden and rack.

I noticed that Wizbang has a few suggestions, but frankly, it sounds like greek to me and I don't have the time. If anyone has the time and knows how we can stop this, please get in touch. The alternative is to shut down these features completely and we don't want to do that.

Trackback Pings


I installed MT-Blacklist and it took care of about 80% of the problem.
