Comment Spam Filter

So, a comment that I wrote myself was recently rejected by my spam filter. This seems to have occurred because it contained an excessive number of links. I don't want to turn the filter aggressiveness down because a lot of spam already gets through, so if you post a comment (or a trackback) and it doesn't appear on the page within a few minutes (it's normally pretty much instantaneous), please email me at kenny@kennypearce.net so I can retrieve it from the junk bin. Thanks!

My problem hasn't been with comments but trackbacks. It's not that they're getting junked, though. They're just getting throttled, which means you can't retrieve them at all.

Yeah, some of my own trackbacks have been throttled as well. I'm not sure what the problem is. I might try to turn throttling off altogether and see if the level of spam is still tolerable...
