Automated trackback spam

, posted: 19-Nov-2006 10:55

Some idiot spammer has found The Techsploder blog, and is sending large amounts of trackbacks from zombies all over the world. They won't ever show up but of course, I have to go through the moderation page and delete them. What a stupid waste of time, but that really seems to be the spammer business model.

Until the spammer can be filtered out, trackbacks are disabled.
