    If you use a full link to the old post, WP will send a "Trackback" to the old post. That's intentional. Some would say it's a good thing as readers on the old post will now know that perhaps there have been updates in the newer post.

    Spam ping? No.

    Don't want to issue the trackback? Just use a relative link to the post. Instead of http://myblog.com/blog/8/1/postName
    use something
    /blog/8/1/postName
    instead.
