    'Already pinged' message when creating new thread

    Just started a new thread, the first time I have done so on the new forum, and I noticed the following appeared under the Trackback field:

    Nope, not just you. VIP pointed this out last week as well. I'm honestly not sure what that is and why that particular link is what always shows up. I'm not sure if this is a feature built in or if its an addon though, given the complete lack of a help guide would imply its an addon.
