Description

Say I have page x. I create a new post adding a hyperlink to page x and publish it. WordPress pings back to my own blog!

Example: http://mahadeo.net/projects/

Suggested Fix: WordPress should try to identify if the link is to the same blog and not ping any such addresses.

Some people like self-pingbacks as a way to easily cross-link related articles.

There's a plugin for this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/no-self-ping/

Going to close as worksforme; you might wish to open an ideas forum thread: http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas.
