Seems I finally found a way to block trackback spam, whew. Referrer spam still goes on, but as I don’t publish referrer links, it’s innocuous – except for driving up my bandwidth stats a little.

A third type of spam is people registering and pointing at porn/gambling sites with their homepage link, but I’m blocking them now by not showing that link for new users, and not allowing it to be filled out on registration. So if you’re a legitimate new user and have a legitimate homepage to show, please e-mail me.
