Trackbacks – Or Lack Thereof

Today Kasia noted that she hadn’t gotten a proper trackback to her blog since August. Forgetting that I had trackbacks active, I took a look at my TypePad control panel: I got one in December… but I have only been pinged 54 times over five years… and I’ve had at least 54 spam pings come in over the years that had to be deleted by hand I’ve also noticed that Steve also pulled’m from the ‘Goat, but I can’t remember when that happened; since I link to him a few times a month, it shows how often I’ve used trackbacks in my own posts. Screw that.

For what it’s worth, I’ve had 888 posts [excluding this one] and 3367 comments [of which half are probably me!] but I’m pretty much done with trackbacks…
