Should I be using trackbacks to notify those who I link to in my posts? If so I have a lot of catching up to do.
I turn them off, on all sites.
I turn them off as well I find them to be a nuisance and I don't approve trackbacks.
I've never used them...
It seems like linkbacks (refbacks, trackbacks, and pingbacks) all got spammed to death.
Spings were a hot thing a few years ago, but I don't think it is effective in 2009.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Yea, I suggest you turn them off too.
I remove the trackback links from the code, but I separate inbound links and trackbacks from comments and display them as a way to encourage people to link to an article from a related article. It does encourage inbound links.
With WordPress, trackbacks get a nofollow attribute assigned to them, so it should not negatively affect the page and is essentially a one-way link to my sites. I do check each one to make sure it does not lead to a porn site or a page with malicious code.

I haven't ever used them either. And don't even plan doing it ever in the future.
