Trackback Hell!

Geek News Central: After 6 hours of being back online here are the preliminary results.

This is after I have had the mt-tb.cgi file removed from the server for over 60 days!

Randy: When I get a trackback, an agent loads the referring page and checks that it actually has a link to the trackbacked blog entry. This eliminates 99.99% of that trackback SPAM. I got 380 trackback pings yesterday (mostly all, if not all trackback SPAM).

I wouldn't want to be malicious, you never know, you might redirect a innocent Web agent. Maybe I can apply enough rules to eliminate that possibility. I'll think about it.
