Re: bbPress 1.0 released



Doing that will also disable the ability to receive ping-backs.

99% of all pingbacks are spam and eat resources. It’s also an easy way to ddos a forum on a shared host because it makes the forum do a non-trivial amount of work to process the data received.

I know pingbacks on forums were a pet dream of Matt’s for forums to have since 0.7 was first released to the public, but IMHO the entire concept of a pingback on a forum defeats the whole purpose of local, active membership.

At least it’s one option that can be removed almost like a plugin by deleting it.

That said, I don’t mean to trivialize the amount of work it took you to make the feature happen, it’s impressive in itself.
