    How do you stop the Trackback spam??
    Some jerk is doing 45 an hour, rotating his IP.
    What is the point? Can the stupid trackback/pinkback thing be removed? How do I stop it?

    You can remove the feature in settings, discussions I believe it is. Or perhaps activate Akismet

    Yes.

    Admin Dashboard>Settings>Discussion>'Default article settings'>uncheck 'Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)'>save.

    Then,

    Admin Dashboard>Comments>'Show all comment types' pull down menu>Select Pings>Click 'Filter' button>(Use 'Bulk action' if desired here and see screen options to list many at once) 'Mark as Spam' as desired>delete spam comments
