    I think your spam trap is working to well again.

  2. tyler says:

    Yah, spam trap may be working too well. I linked and sent the trackback from WordPress (“send trackbacks to” feature in WordPress).

    Errr, maybe the trackbacks are just coming in so fast it hasn’t updated yet…

  3. I had the same problem sending the trackback. When the ping didn’t take, I subsequently took the OTB link off.

  4. tyler says:

    yah, something is definately wrong. Mine was linked and doesn’t show up. I’ll leave it linked just incase though.

    Somehow I ended up on Basil’s lunch dessert twice and I only sent one trackback there…maybe my wordpress is screwed.

  5. You guys too, eh? We’re having the same problems with pings, and end up taking the OTB link off as well.

  6. Hey, I checked back and it wound up working–it just took awhile to show. I used the manual Trackback thingy.

  7. My trackback hasn’t shown up in an hour and a half, so I guess whatever’s wrong also applies to me.

    My ping went through. Alas I am not posted
    Oh well. If anyone wants to read the post I linked

  9. James Joyner says:

    Sorry guys–I’m having my host and tech guru look into this.

    I thought it was just my spam filter plug-in, which I disabled earlier this evening. I just got back from an engagement, though, and found 15 more comments trapped in the WordPress moderation queue.
