But, since a few of you have asked me about it, I’ve turned it on for future posts. I better start seeing some trackback links now soon, or I’ll be turning it off again eventually.

UPDATE/CORRECTION:
Okay, okay, as a few of you have pointed out, I am wrong about MT/TP being the only blog softwares that enable Trackbacks. See comments and trackback-comments for details. I’m also seeing trackbacks on other posts, so I guess I’ll leave them on for a while and see how it goes.

  2. I’ve seen Blogger blogs (like British Spin) using TrackBack, and I know that Expression Engine (the new CMS from the folks at PMachine) also uses it. Word Press, too, if I’m not mistaken. Trackback’s finest hour gives a prime example of how it can be a spectacular way of letting a company know when they’ve done something wrong – or right – and how their customers feel about it.
