02/06/2005: As if blog comment spam weren't bad enough....
As y'all may know, I'm one of the contributing authors/editors at The Birdwatch, a group blog devoted to baseball in general, and the St. Louis Cardinals in particular.
The Birdwatch is managed using Movable Type, and one of the features of Movable Type is that you can configure it to give you email notification of either comments or trackback pings. Imagine my mortification when I received this in my email inbox:
A new TrackBack ping has been sent to your weblog, on the entry 690Oh sweet Jesus save us! Trackback spam! Who'da thunk it?
(Evidence that Walt's worth what we pay him, and then some....).

Actually, the thing that puzzles me is why didn't anyone think of it earlier?
