Spammers Off the Starboard Bow


They’re baaaaack…. Yup, the spammers are back, and have gotten creative. Now, they are going after trackbacks to post their dirty links.

From what I’ve been reading at the WP support fora, it looks like this started after the first of the year for a great many blogs. I feel a little cheated that it’s taken this long for someone to finally get around to slamming my blog. 🙂 In any case, I’ve turned off pingbacks/trackbacks and moved wp-trackbacks.php, as that’s the quick and dirty fix right now until a better flyswatter is discovered. I’m not sure how much use the pingbacks and trackbacks have been on this site anyway.

This is a war, and the fight is on!!!!
