Yes agree. The internet is anarchy and I like it that way.

One interesting point about links is that certain unscrupulous people use these to confer approval of their own sites and causes without authorisation.

I managed to remove links from CBI Scotland and Scottish Chambers of Commerce from the site of a conservative PPC. These clever links made it look like these non-political prganisation were endorsing his candidature.

A great deal of that goes on Strathturret. I can see though that the 'big boys' would want to control links - for financial reward of course. The media heid bummers have been knocked back with their desire to charge for reading their journalism so I suspect much of this comes out of that camp.

Best to be informed though.
