Comment on Technical Support by Susanne.

WordPress Technical Support When creating new posts and/or editing pre-existing posts and pages, is it recommended to select to allow trackbacks and pingbacks or not and why?

I am using the new Stallion Responsive theme and was just wondering what the difference is when checking or not the box(s) under the heading DISCUSSION
Allow comments.
Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page.

Could use some insight into this please.
