I have been getting hit pretty hardcore with the Trackback Spam today. It seems that every time a take a look at my email there’s another 50 messages from MT saying that I have new trackbacks. And they’re not real trackbacks of people writing about something I wrote—they’re links to sex sites. So every couple of hours I’ve been going in and clearing them out. It’s not terribly difficult under MT3, but it is annoying. I sure hope that Blacklist 2.0 is released soon. (Hell, I’d even go for a beta! hint hint.)
For those who have been experiencing the annoying Trackback Spam under MT2.6.x, Jay has some easy instructions for getting rid of it with Blacklist 1.6.4.
