Spammy pingbacks anyone?

Every now and then when I’m creating/editing blog entries on a blog that is not indexed, and known to no one yet, I’ll get an email notification that I have a pingback. The pingback is always from a dreamhost server instead of another blog and it always happens when I’m actively working on the blog.

Should I (or Dreamhost) be concerned?

Should I delete them or mark them as spam?

Well I think I will but, was hoping someone that’s more familiar with running a blog, specifically pingbacks/trackbacks, could share some insight into this behavior.
