"Links To This Post" Feature

Now that Volokh's done it, I've done it too. Doesn't this make trackback redundant, you ask? I don't think so. Trackback will tell you in the post itself (by changing the number) whether someone felt the need to inform us of a response. The "links to this post" feature, on the other hand, provides information on everyone who's linked to us, whether they provided commentary sufficient to invoke a trackback or not (or if they provided sufficient commentary but didn't inform us, a blogging no-no). Many links to this site don't provide commentary so much as they provide more links, useful information, etc, so I think you'll find both functions useful. Or at least I will. You probably don't care. But congrats on reading this far.
