I Coulda Been A Contender...

We have a new contender in the heavyweight trackback spam championship: In just a few short hours, go2url.be has rocketed to second place. Do they have the stamina to make it to the top of the charts? Keep watching!

(That ranking doesn't mean they've sent us 32880 trackbacks [or whatever the number is when you see it]; it's subject to geometric decay, and they've been at it for hours, so it means they've sent us considerably more than 32880 trackbacks. Dickheads.)

(And what is it with Belgium and evil rat-bastard trackback spammers?)

1 This is cool! Can I get it on my blog too?

2 Not yet. It will be in Minx, though.

(There's a problem with using it with Movable Type - MT expects unformatted text, and this editor returns fully formatted HTML, which causes a barrage of line breaks on your comments page.

See what I mean?)

3 Riiiight.  And so, just when I'm pointng out the problem, the problem goes away.

4 I'm pretty sure that Belgian registrars were giving away free .be domains fairly recently. I think you could even get multiples.

I'm pretty sure I saw the story on Digg, and even then, they were saying the domains would essentially become useless as the flood of spammers would cause most sites to simply ban all .be domains.

5 Thanks, that would explain it.  And go2url.be has indeed made it to first place; they are still spamming us.
