OK, I'll turn of comment registration to see what happens with the comment spam.
I've been getting tons of Trackback spam, too. This is a Trackback ping that isn't really from a site linking to a post, but instead takes the reader to a commercial site. Mostly these are for online casino, online casino gambling, Texas Hold-em, and offshore gambling sites. (Sometimes for online prescriptions like order viagra or buy tramadol, and what the hell is carisoprodol?) Lately there have been a lot of blackjack ads, too. Also mortgage refinance. Nothing for Jessica Simpson yet. I guess this online betting thing is becomming very popular - you probably make a lot of money if you have an offshore gambling site. I play poker once in a while. (Or more.) Mostly I play Texas hold-em at PokerStars, an online poker site.
TrackBack URL for this entry:
Your comment spam won't diminish unless you change the name of your comment CGI script to something other than default, and alter your config to reflect that change. I did this and currently up to about 80% of all hits on my MT website are comment spammers looking for the comment and trackback scripts in the default location, but all they get is a 404.

Email me and I'll tell you how I got rid of 100% of my comment and trackback spam.
There is - quite literally - 1 organization behind all of the p****ker and vi****ra blog spam. I wrote one email. One damn email. And it all stopped. Every bit of it (except for the occasional rogue Russian).
