mircea_popescu: pretty lulzy shit. meanwhile dousing 12yos in gasoline pre-gangrape all halal still.
BingoBoingo: Well, the gasoline's potential danger incentives submission on the part of the doused. The knife point's potential danger has contexts where it could promote resistance.

billymg: http://billymg.com/2019/09/additional-tests-for-mp-wp-now-according-to-spec/comment-page-1/#comment-49 << mircea_popescu: i now see what you mean about the pingbacks supporting the extra selection parameters but i'm still not sure what is meant by "trashing the whole trilema trackback pile as extant, and having them re-done in the new manner"
billymg: i did some reading on pingbacks vs trackbacks and it looks like we could remove trackbacks without anyone noticing (mp-wp supports pingbacks and that seems to be what everyone is using)
billymg: i'm not sure if that's what you meant though
billymg: or is the idea to rip out all unused pieces in xmlrpc (blogger, metaweblog, movabletype, etc...) and rewrite the pingback support keeping the select mechanism rather than layering it in after the fact?
billymg: keeping the select mechanism in mind*
mircea_popescu: billymg, the removal part is easy, just delete * from comments where trackback
mircea_popescu: the resending is the issue
mircea_popescu: every time a new article is posted, there's some subroutine that goes through all the links and sends the pingbacks. the idea is to hijack that so it re-does the entire db
billymg: ah, so more of a one-time job/script?
billymg: or, i guess i mean, could a migration script of sorts that's run once manually accomplish the same goal?
