    My site is getting hit hard with spam trackbacks from what looks to be automated scripts (all the comments say the same things, similar words but different links and IP's) I have Akismet activated and it catches a fair amount of the comments. Is there a plugin to stop the trackbacks that are legitimate readers of my blog that works with WP 2.3?

    wait, did you actually mean that? or did you mean NOT to stop the legitimate ones?

    Eh sorry. I want to allow legitimate readers of the blog to post comments and stop the automated trackbacks and spam comments.

    Have you looked at or tried the Bad Behavior plugin yet?

    I'm running it on a 2.3 blog, seems to be fine -- and it still blocks several thousand "bad guys" a week for me. :-)
