I’m not sure what’s wrong really but for a week now, trackback spam attacks have been really really aggressive. I am still using Spam Karma 2 here and 99% of the trackback spams are killed off before seeing the light of day. However, other blogs that I help manage and running Akismet is getting a lot of beating lately.
The first impulse is to delete them all but WordPress doesn’t have that feature to toggle checkboxes so you can tag comments en masse and delete them. I alway suggest that people take some time to flag each trackback as spam so that Akismet will “learn” from these oversight. Or maybe Akismet is just growing obsolete by the day.
Anybody else notice these trackback spam on their blog as well?
