is anyone using Kitten's Spaminator? Does it work on the spam Trackbacks & Pingbacks? After I installed it, all that huge amount of comment spam that I got, was caught & deleted but for the past 2 days, I've been getting spam Trackbacks & Pingbacks from everywhere & Spaminator is not acting on them. Can anyone suggest why?
The trackbacks & pingbacks doesn't contain any links or blacklisted words, so maybe that's why Spaminator is not catching them. Just some nonsense like
from some freak named mbvnwugc from the IP 18.104.22.168. Clearly the purpose of this is not link popularity as its in comment spam. I think that this is a frustrated reaction of the spammer as he can't get any of his spam comments through my defenses.
Can anyone suggest anything? Please do not suggest closing down trackbacks etc on old posts as I wouldn't want to block legit trackbacks to old posts of mine.
