I haven’t been writing much here lately, but others have.
Or rather: They’ve tried.
Some time ago I turned off trackbacks and pingbacks completely, and changed the options for comments to require moderation before anything went online.
That hasn’t stopped the spammers though — I get at least ten mails about spam comments each day, and frankly that’s just not fun.
I should be upgrading to the lastest version of WordPress, as that includes the clever Akismet plugin for catching spam, which seems to work quite well on the other blogs I run. Also, I really should finish the plugin that leverages my social network through FOAF, that’d make for a really great combination, methinks.
Instead I’ve activated a plugin that turns off comments and pings within 30 days of the posting date.
I’m sorry for the inconvience for those who wish to comment on older posts — for now it has to be like that (but do send me a mail if you’d like to comment anyway).
