Trackbacks are dead
Thursday, 23 November 2006
I just disabled the trackbacks on my weblog – something that wasn’t easy for me because I am the maintainer of the trackback plugin for Nucleus. The signal-to-noise ratio has simply become rediculous – about one spam attempt every 15 seconds. There is a simple way to block all that spam – with 100% accuracy even – but given that I haven’t received a proper trackback in months, I just think it isn’t worth it anymore. Trackbacks are dead.
