Dealing with content scrubbers such as silverlight-travel.com (1 post)

    I had a site recently scrubbed for content by an apparent adlink income spammer/website called

    http://www.silverlight-travel.com - 85.214.42.157

    It took content by way of an extended pingback and applied it to an utterly unrelated page on their website. I'd guess by the copying, it is based on an automated script.

    OK, adding the IP to .htaccess is gate closing after the horse has bolted but is there any way to guard against this (except, obviously, disabling pingbacks?).

    Really, I guess what I am wondering is can something like Akismet be adopted to know content scrubbers?

    Thanks
