Typepad Trackback Spam Storm?

Anyone else notice a significant uptake in Typepad trackback spam?

I wish they’d implement a blacklist so that I can block trackbacks based on regexp. Of course this might take up a lot of CPU time. Of course spam prevention is a big issue so they might be able to charge more $ for it. Right now I’d certainly pay!!

Update: Forget what I just said. All I want is the option to block trackbacks and comments on stories older than say 2 weeks. That would solve 90% of my spam problem.


  1. Great idea about blocking trackbacks and comments on stories older than 2 weeks! I just finished writing my own blogging engine, which was probably a dumb way to spend my time, but the upside is that I can implement ideas like your spam blocker in about 2 minutes. Cool.
