Trackbacks disabled, thanks spammers

2005-02-01 , ,

I’ve had to disable trackbacks. The use of CAPTCHA and moderation has
succeeded in driving my blog spam to zero. The losers have instead
turned to flooding me with 20-30 bogus trackbacks at a time. Since
February 2003, I’ve had two legitimate trackbacks so it’s not worth
keeping the feature enabled.

Hmm. Still happening. Okay, twiddled db:
  update mt_trackback set trackback_is_diabled=1
update mt_entry set entry_allow_pings=0

Rebuilt pages. Let\'s see if that helps.
