Trackback spam  JAN 23 2004

This is odd...just before I fell asleep last night, I thought, "I wonder why no one has spammed Trackback yet. It's just so wide open, hanging out there like a breaking ball that didn't break." And then, magically, I'm surfing around this morning and ran across this report of Trackback spamming as well as a TB throttling patch for MT to help minimize the damage. If I believed in Star Wars, I might say that I felt a great disturbance in the Force last night, as if millions of web servers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
