Pings/Spam? (6 posts)

    I'm a little unsure of what "pinging" actually is. If I disallow pings on comments, will that cut down on spam, or will it have no impact? Is there any reason to disallow pings on comments?
    TIA for any help! :)

    This article on blogging includes good information explaining pinging and trackbacks and how they work.

    Pings do not exist.
    Even if pings exist, nothing can be known about them.
    Even if something can be known about pings, that knowledge cannot be communicated to others.

    :) That's a pretty good description.

    The above was a joke (if you can call it that) on solipsist's name.
