It would be nice if we could turn off self-pingback. I'm constantly linking to my own articles. At least make it optional, controllable somewhere from wp-admin.
Yes, there's a plugin to stop self-pinging, but I looked at how the plugin works and it seems it doesn't actually remove the pingbacks, just hides them (assuming I read the php correctly), which is obviously pretty suboptimal performance-wise!
