So when is it too late to change your mind about pingbacks?

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=293

The question came up about when it was too late to change settings on an entry to prevent a pingback from being sent (and I pointed him at Support too). Since the pingback does not happen immediately, and all parts of the pingback process are contained on LJ (and unlike a public post with full RSS feeds turned on, or a public post that someone happens to see on their friends page where there are human factors or the timing of an external feed reader to consider) (also, looks like offsite pingbacks are no longer our friends), I think this is a reasonable thing to document, even if the answer turns out to be "it depends".
