I downloaded and installed WordPress yesterday. Immediately after posting my first test post I received the following email:
New trackback on your post # “Hello world!”
Website: magazine subscription (IP: 188.8.131.52 , tataelxsi.co.in)
URI : http://www.crapmagazines4cheap.com
<trackback />magazine subscription
love this site! check out my magazine subscriptions
Then after every test post I submitted I received something similar about a trackback for a magazine subscription.
I’m used to MT and have had no spamming problems with its use and I’m finding this trackback irritating. If this is part of the deal with WP then I think I would rather uninstall it again.
Could someone please explain to me what is going on and if this is normal?
Thank you very much
