Although you'd think blog spam is pretty similar accross the planet, I 
guess none of use is really experiencing the same kind of spam. I get 
*exactly* 0% trackback and 100% comments in my spam folder. Not a single 
trackback in the spam folder since Akismet showed spam type (for the 
record, I use BB & Akismet)
