[Resolved] Recent explsion of porn spam

  • I read a bunch of posts here and it seems I am not alone with this problem, but I did not see any solutions.

    Recently a LOT of trackback, or maybe pingback porn spam is getting posted to my articles. It is not only on old articles. I got several today on posts only a couple of weeks old. For some reason Akismet is not catching it. It is weird that Akismet would not stop it as it is so obvious. It all contains real crude, correctly spelled, obscenities. Akismet does catch pretty much 100% of the comment spam, just not the pings or trackbacks. I am getting many every day and am getting very discouraged trying to keep up. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    A plugin that sends all trackbacks and pingbacks, (but not comments), to moderation would be great, but I could not find one.

    Thanks.
