To join in, choose a post from your blog to highlight, edit it to add a link to this post, and then send a TrackBack. If your blog doesn’t automatically generate one, use the Send TrackBack feature below. For more information, see this post.

Update: My tech guy installed a new spam filter last night because they old one was interfering with a plug-in that was necessary to fix some load issues on the site. The short-term consequence has been an inordinate number of legitimate comments and trackbacks getting caught in the WordPress moderation queue. We’re looking into it. In the meantime, just send the trackback once and I’ll rescue them periodically. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I submitted a link, but while I think it got through but is still waiting in moderation, I had to use a standalone trackback pinger to send it: When I tried to submit with my Haloscan account, I got an error message. The same thing happened a few times on two other WordPress blogs I submitted to, and I had to use a standalone trackback pinger instead. Can you check to see that it accepts Haloscan submissions correctly? Thanks.
