John Keegan: “The question is, how do we save Trackbacks? How can we tell if an incoming trackback is authentic? While there are many methods in use, they seem to rely on crude methods of content analysis. There is a better way: Analyze trackbacks as if they were email, using the same proven and available spam prevention tools available to email servers.”
John Keegan has come up with some excellent suggestions that outline how weblog publishing tools should implement the Trackback protocol. All excellent stuff that I’d love to see implemented in Blogware.
I can’t help but wondering how much of this is catch-up vs. solution. In other words, spammers continue to stay ahead of the technology curve with email, why will it be any different with Trackbacks? Not sure, but I’m hopeful anyways.
