    I hit "post reply" on the random thought thread & noticed an odd-looking message below my post indicating the post or something had already been "pinged" by RICK THORNE's Page - Patriotic Resistance . What the heck is that? I did post a link to a retail website with a neat lil product i saw.

    What got pinged? What the heck does that mean?

    If you notice at the bottom of the 'reply' window, there is a 'Trackback' area. I'm not 100% clear on how it works, but, IIRC, Rick Thorne has linked to our website to see how much traffic we bring his site, or something vaguely similar.

    Hope I made it clear as mud for you. None of us mods are really sure how it works. Maybe one of the admins will come along and explain it a little better for you.
