    I have a question regarding pinging.

    If you read stuff about WP pinging plug-ins, you will read person after person knowledgeably explain that WP has a bug and automatically pings too much, so you have to have a plug-in to fix it (Max Blog Press seems to be the best). Otherwise your site could get banned from the pinging services and places that receive pings.


    That sounds serious. I certainly don't want that to happen to me.

    So I gotta get the plug-in.. Preferably buy the plug-in... Preferably for a hefty price... Preferably from one of those knowledgeable people...

    Otherwise banished I will be...

    Limbo, baby...

    I get it.


    With all these knowledgeable people around displaying their technical expertise (and they are all over Google if you do a search), why don't they ever tell you how to verify if your site has been banned by a pinging service or place that receives pings?

    So my question is: How can you check this?

    Another question is: Supposing you do discover that your site has been banned from a pinging service or place that receive pings, how do you get it unbanned?

    So far, the best I have had to go on is either (1) keep wondering or (2) look at the formations of chicken entrails on a deity-worship mat and go "Uga, Uga"...

    If there is some knowledgeable person for real out there who can answer these doubts, I will be very grateful for your help.
