Now, those of us who use the excellent WordPress are lucky to have ‘Akismet’ protecting us from spam through comments and trackback. It usually does a great job.
I don’t know quite how it works and learns how to tell spam from a legitimate post, but recently it’s really been letting me down.
Over the past few weeks I am being hit every day with a trackback from many different (possibly zombie) IP addresses to some Italian site saying:
“I found your entry interesting do I’ve added a Trackback to it on my weblog ”
EVERY time, it has the same text. Surely Akismet should spot that fairly easily. Every day I go through and mark them all as spam to remove them from this blog.
So, please please please, whoever is behind Akismet, could you please tell it to stop this bloody annoying trackback. I’ve had ENOUGH of it!!!
