Trackback = spam

Kris, as Dag says, trackbacks are the best way to get a lot of spam on your blog. I disabled the trackback module last year because I got flooded with spam. To test the current situation, I enabled trackback again Thursday evening. Result: 310 trackback spams in the moderation queue in less than two days!

I prefer to install a decent antispam and enable anonymous comments without moderation in that case. Since my antispam is active (Oct 2007), 18527 spams got blocked or more than 150 a day (yes, spammers seem to love me for some strange reason. *sigh*). If it would be able to filter trackbacks, I would reconsider to enable trackback, but right now it's absolutely out of the question.
