So either require all visitors to login before they see any and all content. Or turn off trackbacks.

Quote by Dirk: You seem to misunderstand how trackbacks work. They are always anonymous and can not be tied to a account on your site.
Why? How is the world a better place because people can anonymously litter junk on my webpages? I've been using the Internet for almost 20 years and I cannot fathom the value of cross-page links having to be anonymous. There is no part of my website that allows anonymous users to change my website (short of the views counts). No voting, no comments, no story submissions. Nothing. Why would I allow anonymous users access to the what's related block?
Having just read the specification, I enjoy how bloggers have not learned from the mistakes of history. In any case, just because all this stuff is automated does not mean that GL has to display trackbacks automatically. Perhaps I'll hunt down the submission hack I saw in the hacks forum....
Have you installed the update for lib-trackback.php
yet (also included in the latest Geeklog releases)? This pretty much stops any Trackback spam.
I upgraded from 1.3.11 on 7/21 according to my filesystem. Should this change have been included in the 1.4.0sr5 tar?
