Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
There has been talk of people trying to develop automated ways of creating trackbacks, just like they have developed ways to automatically sign guestbooks and comments. If they are looking to scale something my guess is that it is working well.
However it is a great way to attach yourself to a popular blog and you can get some clickthrough traffic. However you should make a worthwhile post or the site owner may delete your comment.
