Tom Coates proclaims Trackback to be dead. Funny, I didn’t even need to visit his site to know that he’s running his blog on Movable Type and with inadequate spam protection.
That’s like… (pick your poison):
- …not wearing a condom and declaring prostitution dead.
- …not wearing a seatbelt and declaring driving dead.
- …not locking your doors, and declaring home security dead.
If you have a better one, add it.
Most of the time, people complaining about blog spam are running blog software that is 2 years old, or are running without any decent protection at all.
Anil Dash quips:
However, I clearly missed your “email is dead” post on that matter. How did you get by after you abandoned email? 🙂
Heh. If you are using AOL or Hotmail for your e-mail, without any spam filters, you might just think e-mail is dead.
