Akismet Spam – WAKE UP!!!!

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!!!

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
