First we had email spam, followed by comment spam, and excuse me if I'm late to the party (!) but now there's Trackback spam! This is really getting out of hand. I came home tonight to a mailbox that was spammed to smitherenes.
I guess this is going to be another weblog feature that people are going to start switching off, or moderating. It's a real shame but it just goes to show that this network built upon trust isn't working in the real world.
