Comment (by Otto42):

 I don't like the idea of requiring a "magic string" for removal. I think
 it would be better if the thing used standard http error codes instead.

 A "410 Gone" response should cause a removal of the address from the ping
 list. Anybody wanting to disconnect their ping can replace it with the 410
 response, which is unlikely to happen under any normal circumstances. With
 Apache, this is a simple .htaccess directive to do.

 Similarly, a "301 Moved Permanently" response should cause the address in
 the ping list to be updated to the new one. This lets servers change their
 ping addresses easily.
