Persistent Garbage14 Dec 2005
Two weeks ago at blogg.de we stopped accepting xml-rpc pings because, quite frankly, the data coming in was 99% garbage, either non-German blogs or out-and-out spam. Today we are still receiving between 300 and 500 requests per minute on the xmlprc domain. Since the change the outgoing bandwidth peaks according to cacti are 2 MBit/s less than before. That's a lot of garbage.
