trackback spam

hmmmm – I’ve just been hit with 234 trackback spams to the blog (and all the associated emails that details). I thought mtblacklist was meant to stop this sort of thing! Anyway, I went to load the pings up and when I went to delete them it came back with an error that said it was not able to load the ping for deletion. But when I went to redo it there were no spammy pings – weird.
