Muthafcking Blog Content Traffic Stealing Fckers
Surprise surprise. Of course I too swear at times. But only do it in the annoying instances like this one. The blog content thieves aren’t like the blatantly ‘copy and paste’ ones you generally would find. These I would call; excerpt stealers. Hence, almost the equivalent of blog traffic and content stealers.
What happens if after one of my popular posts get published, these fckers would plonk the first paragraph onto their so-called ‘blog’. As much as it looks like a blog, it’s a space for them to store any bloggers content. And you know what makes these people real muthafckers? They don’t even have that little respect to include the author’s name or blog’s name.
Initially, I thought this trackback (or pingback) spam was something the WordPress spam plugin like Akismet and Spam Karma 2 missed. But I now know these spam filters don’t fend off these content traffic stealing fckers. For the past few weeks, I’ve been blacklisting a number of domains. And I’m not sorry because I don’t see how this group of people will be beneficial to my blog or its content.
I’ve even tried installing a plugin called WP-Hardened Trackback (as you can see below the comments) but it doesn’t work. Just a couple of minutes ago, another spam trackback came in and into the blacklist I threw it.
Due to the annoying fact this is happening and WordPress can’t do anything about it – I think, I’ve turned off; Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.). This is found in your Options > Discussion under Usual settings for an article.
I would really like to enable trackbacks but this kinda incidences really drives me up the wall.
Any other blogger found a solution to trackback spam or is experiencing trackback spam?
