Trackback Spam, easily solved?

Seems cubicgarden is actually getting its first hit of trackback spam. People never ever believe me when I say cubicgarden actually gets a reasonable amount of readers (mainly through the rss) but this proves its easy to find and also a target for spam bots. its really easily solved, but I'm going to hold off for a bit to see how this trackback spamming progresses. I could use the open proxy moderation plugin which is pretty harsh or the Trackback moderation plugin. Someone once mentioned somewhere that most spam bots dont leave any referer, so maybe someone will build a plugin for blojsom which ignores trackbacks without a referer, if thats actually possible?
