they're spamming my trackbacks!

Sweet jesus on a pogo-stick, this is terrible. I barely have a handle on controlling the massive quantities of annoying and (mostly) lewd comment spam - now they have to go and start spamming in my trackbacks. Fuckers.

I may have to close my trackbacks if this continues. It's not like they're put to much use, anyways. But it's the principle of it. These bastards are basically vandalising my webspace. It's as if somebody tags your wall. Sure, you can get it cleaned/painted off, but it's a huge pain in the ass. These guys who do this for a living are scum of the earth, so far as I'm concerned.

...pogo-stick?

The eternal struggle of MT bloggers vs. MT spammers. Does MT log any info on the commenters? Maybe you could, ah, use countermeasures of some sort.

I've alreay got a blacklist in effect - but those spammers spend their days thinking up new ways to hide themselves and new URLs.

I've been having the same problem of late. It forced to to turn off "trackback" but it's a major buttpain trying to go back and deleting them.

The MT Blacklist hasn't been worth poop for me either.
