Upping the Anti-Spam Measures

Some annoying Trackback spam has been coming through on my blog, so I've upped the ante by installing MT-Moderate and SpamLookup. MT-Moderate allows moderation on Trackbacks (which MT doesn't do by default) plus does some very basic analysis of comments and trackbacks on older entries. SpamLookup checks the originating IP of all comments and trackbacks and compares them to DNSBL and SURBL services.

I'll keep my finger on the pulse of how much spam gets through, now.
