Apparently some think Plinks are a bad idea.

    I must ask… Do you also Think they are a bad idea?

    Or just taking your time to implement them?

    I for one love teddy bears.

    Actually, I think if used properly they are a great idea. If you have a blog that has entries with a lot of original content and your entries are typically long then I think it’s all good. Also, you need to make the Plinks as unobtrusive as possible.

    For it would be silly to implement them.
