CKS EBE and Automatic Detection of Trackbacks… no no… you get SPAM hell.

If you’re using CKS EBE and have a solution to this, please feel free to let me know.

The automatic detection of blogs that post to your site is a pretty nice feature of CKS EBE, however, from what I see, there is no error checking.  So if sites point to yours, you’ll eventually detect it through trackbacks, and you’ll post their spam onto your site.

If this has happened to you, the easiest solution is to create a template for the list that contains the spam (trackbacks received), delete the list that has the spam, and recreate it with the exact same name.  Hopefully you have some experience with MOSS so doing this won’t be too difficult, however if you need further instructions, let me know.

Keep in mind that following this procedure will cause all of your trackbacks received to be lost.  If this hasn’t happened to you yet, you can disable this feature under "blog settings > Receive trackbacks from other blogs".

Good luck, happy blogging, and hey… at least I was #3 for ‘orgasmoverdose’ on google for a little while. hahaha.  Damn spammers.
