How to stop pingbacks?

    I am getting flooded with spam pingbacks. I've been marking them as spam to assist the filter, but it is not helping. Is there a way to stop wordpress.com from listing pingbacks? My e-mail inbox is so flooded that I can't easily find my regular mail.

    The blog I need help with is distilledopinion.wordpress.com.

  2. If you don't want pingbacks at all, you can turn them off globally here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#default-article-settings

    If you want to turn them off on a post-by-post basis, see here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/

    To turn off email notifications of comments (including pingbacks): http://en.support.wordpress.com/comment-notification-email/

    In addition to the above, keep marking them as spam.
