    Unfortunately Wordpress has neither a Usenet group nor even a mailing list und Web fora are totally out of the question, so what am I to do, but bother you

      Unfortunately Wordpress has neither a Usenet group nor even a mailing

      but bother you nice people?

      A net of spambots has found my blog <http://blog.berger-odenthal.de/>
      and is filling my comments with trackbacks. I have not found any way to
      block those (comments as such are only accepted from registered users).
      Is there one or do I have to keep deleting a dozen per day?

      Danke

        Can't you just de-register the offender - I see you use Chaptcha to stop machine registrations, shouldn't these two measures stop your problem ?

          To post and comment yes. Trackback is different: The perpetrator writes
          a post supposedly commenting mine onto his own blog and a trackback
          comment linking to his spam is automatically generated by wordpress in
          mine.

          See <http://blog.berger-odenthal.de/wordpress/?p=361> for new examples.
          Interestingly it's only that one post, that's targeted.

            Going over all the settings again I found it now:
            Settings-->Discussion has "Allow link notifications from other blogs
            (pingbacks and trackbacks.)" and what's more this can also be
            individually disabled for single articles, which is what I've done now.
            I'll now delete all trackbacks but one, which shall remain as a sample
            for a couple of days.
