After a lot of effort trying to fight comment and traceback spam, I'm afraid I've finally had enough and decided to turn off all the comment and traceback features on this weblog.
Sorry, but some bad guys are ruining everything for the rest of us in the blogosphere.
Update: I turned off all comment and trackback features on this blog in April 2008 after the web server was being overwhelmed by automated requests from spam-bots -- even before the requests got to the spam filter check.
Even now after actually deleting the comment and trackback script files from the web server, it still receives about 10 spam-bot requested per minute but at least now it fails fast with a 404 and doesn’t consume all the CPU on the server (which my hosting company complained about for some reason! ;-)
