Blog spam attack

In the last 24 hours this blog has been attacked by nasty porn spammers. I’ve erased dozens of spam comments and trackbacks. 🙂

I’ve turned off trackbacks for now ( 😦 ) and I will add comment captchas later today to try and stop this crap. Anyone have a good suggestion on how to manage trackback ping spam?

  1. mt-blacklist is the way to go, another alternative is to run a script that’ll set old stories with their comments/trackback closed (there are several of these around). The latter was the best way I found, stopped about 90% of my comment spam right away.
