I don’t know if someone else has the same problem, but in the last 2 weeks my blog is litterally inundated with SPAM by someone using the ping/trackback feature.
I say “someone” because it is always the same IP address, and he always posts the same message.
I’ve been using the Spam Karma plug-in for well over a year now, and it does wonders.
But just like WordPress itself, ping/trackback SPAM seems to get right through.
I’ve added that dickhead’s fixed IP address in both WordPress and Spam Karma’s black lists, but it makes no difference, they keep pouring in every 10 minutes.
Is there a way to tell WordPress to retroactively disable ALL previous post’s trackback? Meaning, short of having to individually go through 5 years of editing every single post and disable the ping feature on each of them, is there a magic button I can press to say “ok, WordPress, go disable ping on ALL previous posts”?
I now have ping/trackback disabled by default for all new posts, but it doesn’t help me much, because that dickhead is pinging his SPAM randomly on all previous posts over the last few years (which were then by default ping enabled)
Thanks in advance
