If you have more than 999 posts, you will need to go to the next page and repeat the process. Doing so disables pingbacks and trackbacks on selected posts. However, you will need to manually delete unwanted pingbacks and trackbacks on a per-post basis, or via the comment moderation screen.
In fact, there is only one significant difference between pingbacks and trackbacks: Pingbacks and trackbacks use drastically different communication technologies (XML-RPC and HTTP POST, respectively). But that difference is important because trackbacks have become the target of so much spam. The automatic verification process introduces a level of authenticity, making it harder to fake a pingback.
Comment Spam refers to useless comments (or trackbacks, or pingbacks) to posts on a blog. These are often irrelevant to the context value of the post. They can contain one or more links to other websites or domains. Spammers use Comment Spam as a medium to get higher page rank for their domains in Google, so that they can sell those domains at a higher price sometime in future or to obtain a high ranking in search results for an existing website.
Most blogs have a method to allow visitors to leave comments. There are also nifty ways for authors of other blogs to leave comments without even visiting the blog! Called \"pingbacks\" or \"trackbacks\", they can inform other bloggers whenever they cite an article from another site in their own articles. All this ensures that online conversations can be maintained painlessly among various site users and websites.
One of the most exciting features of blogging tools are the comments. This highly interactive feature allows users to comment upon article posts and link to your posts and comment on and recommend them. These are known as trackbacks and pingbacks . We'll also discuss how to moderate and manage comments and how to deal with the annoying trend in \"comment spam\", when unwanted comments are posted to your blog.
The idea here is that more people are introduced to the conversation (both Person A's and Person B's readers can follow links to the other's post), and that there is a level of authenticity to the trackback comments because they originated from another weblog. Unfortunately, there is no actual verification performed on the incoming trackback, and indeed they can even be faked.
Person B's trackback to Person A's blog generally gets posted along with all the comments. This means that Person A can edit the contents of the trackback on his own server, which means that the whole idea of \"authenticity\" isn't really solved.(Note: Person A can only edit the contents of the trackback on his own site. He cannot edit the post on Person B's site that sent the trackback.)
The pingback is generally displayed on Person A's blog as simply a link to Person B's post. In this way, all editorial control over posts rests exclusively with the individual authors (unlike the trackback excerpt, which can be edited by the trackback recipient). The automatic verification process introduces a level of authenticity, making it harder to fake a pingback.
Some feel that trackbacks are superior because readers of Person A's blog can at least see some of what Person B has to say, and then decide if they want to read more (and therefore click over to Person B's blog). Others feel that pingbacks are superior because they create a verifiable connection between posts.
I am not sure your experiment proves much, except that a trackback can be approved quickly. Maybe someone dislikes you personally, or thinks you are a physics traitor, or thinks you are too negative about mainstream physics, or is offended that you attack sacred cows, or sees you as a threat to physics funding. It might be useful to do an experiment to distinguish these possibilities. Maybe you (or some reader) can start a blog that directly attacks the multiverse as unscientific, or says that the LHC is a big waste of money. Maybe you could throw in some Lubos-style rants.
i know this is a bit dark, and i might be wrong, or not even wrong, but sometimes i get the feeling that if we threw all the blog posts and comments and trackbacks into the trash, physics would not be harmed in any way, and may even be enhanced, as the snarky, handwaving, entrenched regimes of failure faded to naught, allowing new ideas to blossom.
If you have the setting Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks) on new articles enabled, you may get a special kind of comment called a trackback or pingback when someone else links to your blog from their site.
You have done a wonderful job on explaining spam comments. I see lots of spam comments on my blog everyday but sometimes its really difficult for a newbie to distinguish between real comments and spam comments. Thanks for the tips.

I, too, watch Toddlers & Tiaras and King of the Crown. I watch them not as a pageant lover, but as someone in complete astonishment. I never get tired of watching this circus.Everytime I watch Toddlers & Tiaras, I find myself with my mouth wide open and my head constantly shaking. It is disgusting to me that mothers push their daughters into wearing pounds of make-up, and take out loans to buy the gaudiest dress in a shop. What happened to teaching children that they are \"beautiful they way they are\"? I agree that most of these mothers put their daughters in pageants to \"show them off\" they way they never were. As a performance dancer, I understand the concept of flashy costumes and stage make-up. But I also understand the idea of a PERFORMANCE. I feel pageant children are being taught that the skills (eyebrow-waxing and fake-tanning) they learn in modern \"glitz\" pageants are real-life skills. This just is not so. Self-pride and confidence are wonderful; but these children should be taught to take pride in themSELVES, and not in a pre-packaged appearance.
I have watched the beauty pageant shows on television and would have to say that I am constantly asking myself why would a mother put her child through such a thing? Of course there are some positive life skills that their child can learn as mentioned in the blog but the negative out ways them. From being entered into these pageants at such a young age girls and boys learn that outer appearances are far more important than the inside. Being dolled up with heavy makeup, outfits that cost in the thousands, and being forced to stand on the stage while judges critique your every move is very heart wrenching. Children should not be taught that you have to change your outer appearance in order to fit into society they should be taught that they are beautiful just the way that they are. The money that parents put into the pageants could be used toward their college education instead.
There are some young girls that wishes to be in a pageant however the majority are the wishes of the parents. Some because we feel that our children are so cute. I have seen where some children are not interested and do not want to participate and they are forced by parents. Children should be allowed to be children. Some children know that they want to participate in pageants and perform and love doing it. I agree when we put fake eyebrows on them wax them and add pounds of hair they look like a little adult . Lets keep in mind these crazy pedifiles also.
kate please please go away don't come back. saw the cover of people not again. as far as the picture of your toned firm stomach good fake picture. looked so fat on dancing with the stars. how's the new book going.
Once refinement is done, there are some smaller meetings, followed by the Activity Plan Approval Meeting. At APAM, we step through the plan line by line again, and make sure that everything is approved. At this point things are pretty much solidified and so we also review more accurate predictions of how much power, data, and time the plan will require. Once APAM is over, the first shift PULs leave and the second shift takes over to turn the plan into actual sequences, which are the actual sets of code that tell the rover what to do.
thats a very well written piece, ive passed by all of these stages. its been two years and i got to accept what happened at the end. I got in so many relationships after that and every time i compared them to my ex, so i ended up failing. It was getting worse after every breakup because it made me feel that he was the only one who can me happy and satisfied. I know im much better without him, im more successful and social person after the breakup. Yet, i can give up everything to get back to him. I can even forget what he did to me and start allover again. Maybe i still have this feeling because i didnt get him out of my life, and we act as friends, so he calls me from time to time to check on me and to take me out.
I think for me the most devistating thing is breaking up with the same person several times . Each time going back with some hope that your love will come through and fix the underlying issues . When it falls apart again there is nothing left but frustration and pain. Sometimes letting go is the only way to find harmony
