And then Charles Cooper over at CNET.com puts up an article belittling the issue. I added my 2 cents there:
TalkBack: Autolink is bad for publishers | reader response on| CNET News.com
(I hereby confess to not only using Google's Toolbar but to using the "Blog This" button on their toolbar to post this entry. Sigh.)
