    I only got one, but it was from a post from last year. No idea what they are.

    I think it means another site quotes you and provides a link back to your original post. I had one and clicked on it and it sent me to another site with palm news
    that quoted one of my posts on its blog.
    Click on the linkback and find out where it goes...

    Well, I am guessing that someone in that thread quoted a post of yours, see if you can find the citation in the thread. If you then object, I suppose you can write to the person and ask them to edit their post. Not sure why you would want to do that though.

    Yea..this has been so annoying. I went into my email program and set a "filter" if Subject begins with "New LinkBack to post", automatically move to the Trash...

    it has been so much better after I set that up!

    Great idea! Is this a new feature here at precentral or did someone just learn how to use it and they're getting linkback crazy. There should be an option to unsubscribe to linkbacks.

    Hey all

    Apologies. We have never really bothered with the link back feature and thought we might approve a bunch to see what the effect was. We didn't realize that the forums would inundate you all with email. Really sorry about the hassle there.

    We will make doubly sure that annoying emails won't go out on these before we do anything with link backs again.

    I've setup a filter in my gmail account.

    Expect lots of messages in the forum about this
