End of Trackbacks

So not that they’re terribly heavily used, but I’ve turned off Trackbacks on the site. Why? Because comment-spammers, apparently hip to the fact that well, that doesn’t work anymore (plug-ins + approving all non-TypeKey’d comments) have moved on to Trackback spam. I received 160 trackbacks last night, all pointing to site of the usual suspects. So no more Trackbacks. Everyone else who allows them, expect to get spammed in the next little while.

update: Apparently, there’s no way to globally, retroactively turn off Trackbacks. So that kindof sucks. I don’t really want to manually close all trackbacks. There must be a way somewhere, I just haven’t figured it out…
