The day after I wrote this post, about a problem with Trackback spam, Tom Coates declares Trackback dead. I tend to agree. Textpattern, which I use to manage this blog, doesn’t include Trackback functionality at all and I haven’t missed it.
Tom also wonders how we will get around it, how we will isolate the groups we wan’t to communicate with. Funny, because that’s exactly what I thought of earlier today and I think I have a solution to the problem, in Yulblog’s case anyway. Update on that very soon.
