Bye Bye Trackback

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!

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 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.
