I saw weird stuff in my search query logs today – at first I thought it was funny and a bit crazy that people were finding me through “beastiality”. I tried to think where I’d mentioned (and mispelled) such practices. Then, I happened to look back at an archive post and realised why – although I’ve managed to throttle (I love that word) the comment spammers with Chad Everett’s MT-Approval (Now v1.0!) btw they don’t seem to be at all discouraged and keep trying to post away.

Anyway it turns out that now I’m getting trackback spam and had been pinged about sixty times in the last fortnight with really nasty stuff. I’ve cleared it all out but it does make me mad – I don’t want to put anything in the way of people pinging me, but I don’t know what else to do – I’ve set MT to e-mail me when I get pinged.
