Trackbacks are killing me
Learning Movable Type: Trackback Spam. Another example of how anything popular is going to get spammed. Trackbacks are now the disease for me. Instead of just shutting them off, they are at least moderated with MT-Moderate so they don’t appear, but they are still very annoying. A new one gets through every day and there is way to throttle. Some great suggestions on this post.
I use Blacklist which works well, but new attacks come just about every day. MT-DSBL blocks comments from open proxies and there is one that blocks from open SMTP servers. I’m going to install that.
There is also the path of rotating the script names around that I’m pretty sure won’t work well. But MT-Antispam-Rename is not a bad short term defense.
