This is weird.

About a day or 2 ago, I started getting a stream of Trackback notices by email. At first, I feared it was something Beth warned about after my use of a spam enticing word.

But no, this was a string of trackbacks triggered from my own posts, going back to a year ago, to either the same entry or another old post. So my blog, on its own, is sending trackbacks to itself.

Weird. I updated WP to 2.0.5 a few weeks ago, and have not done anything to the code in the last 2 days.

So who is out there putting voodoo on my blog?
