I’ve been noticing an increasing amount of pingback spam, which I gather is the next generation of comment spam. Instead of leaving comments with the usual links to porn sites or merchandising come-ons, the spammer links to a blog post and expects readers to follow the pingback. Anybody else noticed this? Or is it already well know, as I suspect is the case? I’ve never tried to pass myself off as the most up-to-date blogger on the Web.
