Thanks to the "Online Casino" and "Porn" spammers who 'hijacked' the::unwired's TrackBack function a couple of minutes ago (even if the::unwired supports the 'rel="nofollow"' link attribute in order to alert search spiders that a particular link shouldn't be factored into the search engine's PageRank calculations), I've (temporary) disabled the TrackBack function of the::unwired for now.

Well done you idiots. Guys like you (as well as your sister companies who fill-up my inboxes with the same spam) are the dead of the free Internet! I'm still a big supporter of the Free Speech Online campaign, but for sure not for this waste of commercial bits and bytes! Not to mention that these robots hammered my server hard with unnecessary requests. They've added +350 "Trackback" in less than 10 minutes.

Cheers ~ Arne
