A Tip:

I have grimaced every time I looked at that ugly ‘Disclaimer’ notice.  I contacted WordPress support who told me how to better handle the situation. In the case of the ones on Pitching Pennies Poetry, I had already deleted them so it was too late to follow the advice, but if any of you should experience the same problem do not delete the ping back or the comment.  Go to ‘comments’  on your dashboard, locate the ping back or comment in question and click spam.  A quote from WordPress Support:



  1. “Pingbacks — Support — WordPress.com


    A pingback is a special type of comment that’s created when you link to another blog’s post, as long as the other blog is set to accept pingbacks. To create a pingback, just link to another WordPress blog post from within a blog post or a page on your own site. … ”

    I ask that our members do not make a pingback unless they first ask the person whose material they want to share at the Pub, also that the material is relevant to our site and family rated.

    Each individual may choose to prevent pingbacks of their work by going to

    Post Settings
    More options
    accept pingbacks (remove check if you don’t ever want them on that particular post…You will need to do this with each post that you don’t want pingbacks on)
