some of you probably know that if you link internally to your own articles on your own blog/site, if you're using Wordpress, that you end up with a ping back comment on the article where the link is, basically quoting text you used to link with. I have a bunch of spam comments that I have to sift through to mark as spam and intermingled are these self-pings. Kind of annoying. I was wondering what would happen if I put those in the trash. I've looked around for an answer, closest I've gotten is advice on how to disable self-pings which either involves a plug-in or some code. But what I'm wanting to know is how to get rid of the self-pings I already have collecting in the comment moderation queue.
You just turn pingbacks off, no plugin required, you just uncheck it
Sign in as Admin..go to settings, go to discussions.
uncheck: Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)
Cool. Thanks, Deborah. I'll do that. Is there any value to allowing others to pingback on your blog. Probably not much. Do you know what happens if I delete the self-pings that I already have?

Someone left a bunch of wikipedia links in a comment on one of my hubs. They were relevant to what we were talking about. I would rather not delete the comment unless I have to. However, I'm also aware that...
