Why not just list them at BADSITES as a "do not
link list"? If the
*community* agrees on an entry, hey, cool, don't link it. If not, well, the
community has decided, right? Unless very small minorities on-wiki get to
decide they know better than everyone else and try to policy wonk or game
their way to their ends. But that would be wrong, no? ;)
The problem with that, Joe, is that some members of the "community"
who've been particularly vocal on the linking issue are regular
posters to Wikipedia Review. Mango, for example, posts as Papaya.
Should the people who keep these sites going be the ones to decide our
policy on linking to them?
