 There's a great plugin called [http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/no-
 self-ping/ No Self Ping] which stops WordPress pinging itself. It's less
 than a dozen lines of code, and it seems like a really obvious feature
 (almost a bug in WordPress). I've attached a patch to add it to core.

 There may be a smarter way to figure out if the post is submitting back to
 ourself, but I figured this would cover most cases. It might be possible
 to add a unique string to the ping request so we can detect it and ignore
 it if it's from our own site, but this seemed simpler.
