I see you got up with your foot in your mouth, as usual.

link appreciations and have nothing to do with:


posting submitter appreciations

and yes nobody love's those but they only delete the link from that profile and don't damage your reputation. And yes I like a tidy link when possible. (The eye want's also something)


It is not clear why voting negative on valid links is considered welcome behaviour. But you have shown a pattern of trying to impose your personal preference on the online.

To be honest, I'm a little bit confused about tidy, beautiful, nice or whatsoever links!   

Due to fact that many of my correct and working links fail in the beauty contest of some voters, I think it's the best for me to freeze those linky things until further clarification.

you still don't get it do you? It is not negative voting on the profile links. and you can keep your negativisme out of the forum and keep your personal attacks to your self included your negative votes on my person.

Ken could (and probably should) just change the code so when you submit a link it formats the display in a set preference (probably his) no matter how it as contributed

That would be nice, seeing as how people are still 'ing against these links that work perfectly fine but don't look "pretty"

I resign from this "link beauty" contest and remove the bad looking ones!

So my bad looking Wiki links will disappear gradually!



May the best (looking) links improve the online database!

I hate to be a stickler, but that isn't a 'reason'.  It is an example of what you don't like vs. what you do like. 
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

And I say that is your preference not to have them cleaned up. I'm only providing the clean working links, it is up to Ken, what he wants to do with it and how the Invelos site will be looking.
Web sites are there also for the looks, if you agree or not that is life.

There is only one issue that is relevant. Does the link work?  I don't care how pretty or ugly a link is...as long as it works.

Exactly.... we are showing no preference what so ever... we don't care what it looks like... whether it is the short link or the longer link... as long as the link works that is all that matters.
