Why is pings sent in delayed batches? (1 post)

    In an attempt to reduce the numbers of outbound pings a a new undocumented "feature" was introduced in WordPress 2.8.
    Instead of notifing ping services every time a post is published or edited, pings are now sent once every hour, at the most.

    I can't find anything about this feature in the release notes for 2.8, was the feature merged in by accident?

    I think this change is really bad for the wordpress community and has discussed it on my blog:
