A new kind of spam

October 13, 2007 4 By archshrk

I’ve been getting hit with a new kind of spam lately. the trackback spam. And it moves pretty fast. The post I just published…already hit.

Basically, a dumbing blog is created that post countless articles that basically read
[random name] wrote an interesting post today on
Here?s a quick excerpt

and then is followed by a small exerpt. This is obviously automatically generated and is just another sad form of comment spam that clogs up our comment boxes. It appears they make money off the Google ads they run.

At first, I just deleted them but now I’m actually marking them as spam. You should do the same.
