My apologies if such a question has already been asked, but what could
constitute pingback spam ?
When should a weblog pingback another weblog ? Entry creation is a given
but what about entry editing, people commenting and linking to yet
another weblog in their comment (which in some situations is almost
equal to talking about the 'yet another weblog' in the entry body, for
example in a MeFi / Kuro5hin thread), or (and here comes an interesting
possibility for spamming) editing the entry to remove the link to the
fore-pingback'd weblog ?
Could the latter case be avoided by a 'reverse pingback' that would tell
'hello, I removed the link to your blog, please remove me from the list
of blogs that pingback'd your entry' ?
