UPDATE: Disabling trackbacks didn’t work for old posts. I just got another 20 or so spambacks since writing this post. Urgh
Well, Akismet has not learnt about the hundreds of near identical trackback spam posts I have had over the past could of days. So I am disabling them all. And yes, I did report every single one of them as spam.
I’m hoping the options setting in my admin pages sets them to OFF for all previous posts made, and not just for new posts.
I reeeeeally REALLY hate spammers. It really depresses my for some reason. Something to do with the sheer f*cking futility of it all. The complete waste of energy. The annoyance. It server NO purpose, expect for the rest of the idiots out there who actually click on there things (or bots, doing the same)
[Just to let you know, I'm swearing very loudly and aggressively in my head]
It has been doing a job job at catching most spam until recently. According to others I read, the same is happening there too. Something’s up, Watson!
