When you insert 119,000 trackbacks over a week though, sooner or later, it will be noticed. The situation is under control now, and each IP that tries to submit a trackback now gets blocked through iptables (40 blocked ip's in the last 30 mins), short of contacting each server owner, how can I get this stopped?"
