Any chance of getting trackbacks turned back on? December 2, 2004 11:25 PM   Subscribe

Any chance of getting trackbacks turned back on, Matt? I really liked the way I could follow them out into the bloggy cloud of commentary, which often included longer essays and pictures of kittens and stuff.

For what it's worth, I kind of enjoyed that as well. It reminded me of the time when I used to get random links from blogs that weren't meta-something.

Kittens with pancakes? Wait, sorry, I got that wrong. Shit.

I thought the music accompanying the threads was glorious.

I assumed that it wasn't impossible to filter malicious embeds in the trackbacks, just a matter of some work. And now that somebody's being paid to update the codebase, apparently, well, I figured I'd ask. Pony season is... open!

Believe me, that only encourages him. What he really hates is when you take off your underwear and put it on your head while hopping on one foot and whistling "Bolero".

I think it's "Beck's Bolero" he really hates.
