That Spam Problem

Every blog on this machine now has the the spam words from my blog appended to their own!
Blog authors here should hopefully see a major decrease in the number of spam comments and trackbacks they have to moderate as I’m fairly diligent in updating my word list!
More on spam trackbacks to come later including mangled links to some of my content that was robbed to create a spam weblog. Thanks guys – just the motivation I needed to update my spam fight! nah nah nah! 😛

Funnilly enough, over the past 24 hours I have seen a pretty dramatic increase in the levels of comment spam, however, I will watch and see what happens over the coming days!

Daragh – you weren’t using Kitten’s Spaminator, that’s why! I edited your options table and enabled it but check the plugins admin page to make sure it’s running!
