Say Goodbye To Trackbacks

Because 99.5% of the Trackbacks I receive are spam, and because I hate wasting what little personal time I have deleting ads for gambling sites, prescription drugs, and penis enhancement alternatives, I’ve turned off Trackbacks here at the Bastad. Earlier this week, we turned off Trackbacks at the blog I work on for work and the difference in my morning routine has been, for lack of a better clich?, like night and day. Getting rid of the chore of deleting the crap that was coming in on a daily basis has freed up my time considerably.

So, goodbye Trackbacks. You were a nifty idea but, as with most nifty ideas on the Internet, spammers, scammers, and n’er-do-wells have ruined you and squashed your potential.
