Six Apart getting hit by Trackback Spam Also

Ohhh feel the love. Six Apaart get’s to feel the same pain a bunch of us have felt all weekend. Maybe someone now will figure out how to fix this. You know Yahoo, Google, Hotmail etc have solved a lot of problems by making users verify they are a human by entering text that is in a obscured box. This will not fix the trackback issue, but could be a option. [Six Apart]

  1. We’ve been putting some thought into the potential for abusing TrackBack for some time, even before this happened, but thanks for the report.
