Eric: Blacklist seems to be turning the tide

For the record, MT-Blacklist has blocked 167 trackback spams. If any of them had gone through, of course, the Nofollow tag would have made them worthless to the spamming company, so with luck I'll get on a list as too much trouble for my worth.

Which is the story of my life, really.

I'll just put it here. http://rocr.xepher.net/weblog/archives/000652.html

Because of the peculiar events of my MT upgrade, I'm keeping a finger at the pulse of blog comment/trackback spam and gallery spam. I'm feeling very vulnerable right now.
