Getting porn trackbacks (HELP?!)

I remember writing a story about a Philippine newsmagazine website getting porn trackbacks last week. Today, when I checked my e-mail, I got more than 10 trackbacks from porn websites! Now, I have to turn off the trackback option. It was irritating to delete each of them.

That’s blog technology for you. Trackbacks are meant to allow people to link their articles to your own. This promotes some sort of a conversation online. But apparently porn websites are abusing this feature, and using it to link back amusing entries to your past entries.

If anyone out there knows how to stop this please let me know. By the way, I’ve also turned on the moderation so please be patient. I will be moderating all the comments (which is not an easy job btw) coming in, now that the porn sites are on to me…
