Oh, this sucks! (Deleting spam trackbacks deletes the articles but leaves the spam trackbacks!)

Apparently the "moderate trackbacks" setting in CoreBlog doesn't do anything. I just turned on the trackback history box and discovered hundreds of trackback spams have been added. So, I started plowing through the articles deleting the trackbacks...

But they didn't disappear from the recent trackback listing. So I re-indexed the whole blog. And they still didn't disappear. Shoot, thought I, I'll hit undo and just disable all display of trackbacks everywhere to deny the comment-spam-spawn-of-satan their ill-gotten gains... but there's no undo!

Why isn't there an undo in a Zope product? Argh. Now I'll have to get the whole blog rebuilt from a backup (meaning this very post will be lost, indicentally).

So, off I go to file a bug report. First question; what version of CoreBlog and Zope are you running. Hmm, well, don't have access to the products page in Zope... so can't tell ya. Argh.
