In response to Steven Taylor's post on the Seven Deadly Sins of Blogging, along with chiding from both Erik Marshall and Paladin, I tried to set up trackbacks on my blog. The truth is, I still have no idea what they do, nor why they would be useful.
So far, so bad. All they've done is muck up my fonts ... and as a textual scholar, my fonts are VERY important to me! Anyway, I'll be dealing with those technical troubles today, so my apologies if the page seems more user-hostile than friendly.
