The site’s only been up for five days and I’m already getting referrer spam. No comment spam yet, but I’ll probably disable comments and trackbacks until I have some interesting stuff up, and sort it out then.
Thanks to some helpful advice on Caveat Lector I
used a bunch of Apache
.htaccess rules to filter out domains containing
spam-like words. It’s likely that there will be some false positives but until I
find another way, it’ll have to do.
In other news, Drupal’s project module is giving me trouble; it refuses to track my projects’ releases. I think it’s PostgreSQL compatibility-related, but the exact reason is proving to be difficult to track down.
