Even using Akismet for anti-blog-spam (which seems to work pretty well), I’ve noticed that as far as trackbacks/pingbacks are concerned, I only get two types:
- One of my own articles tracking back to itself for cross-referencing.
- Spam that slips through Akismet.
So I’ve disabled trackbacks because they’re just a pain in my ass to moderate. If anyone can provide a decent argument why I should re-enable them, I’m all ears. Comment away. (Comments are still enabled.)
