The comment and trackback spam is just getting ridiculous around here. I don't often look at my old posts, so I had no idea how bad it was getting. I am still trying to prune back the spambacks and spamments in the archives, but it is a long project (though not a thankless one. Will always does a great job keeping things clean and classy when he has the time, and he thanked me for trying to sort it all out).
It is just embarrassing to look at these posts that I put effort into polluted with trackbacks and comments for some really wretched stuff.
It used to be that only posts that were a few weeks old were getting clogged with this garbage, but now posts that are only a week or two old are now regularly getting infected.
Who are these people, anyway? Can we deport them?
If I ever see the words 'texas hold 'em' again it will be too soon, which will be in about another hour when I plunge in there again.

Is that deviled spam?
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at August 9, 2006 06:51 AM
No, but spam is the devil!
Posted by: Ken McCracken at August 9, 2006 07:16 AM
I've gotten into the habit of manually closing off comments and trackbacks after a piece has been up for a week. I don't like it, but I don't see an alternative.

Yep, which kinda sucks, because sometimes you would get comments or trackbacks later on when you don't expect them.
Not any more, unfortunately.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at August 9, 2006 09:13 AM
I have all trackbacks go straight to moderation by default, and I have the MT moderate by delay plugin that accepts comments on posts of a certain age (you can define this, I have mine set to a month) but they go straight to moderation.
That makes spam/trackback moderating very easy...though I wish I was still on Wordpress which had Spam Karma. I never had to touch a thing with Spam Karma.

Hmm, must look into that.
