    Yeah, I see your point.

    A few subtle links within an article is fine. I guess my biggest beef is with these sites where you're reading an article and damn near every other sentence is a hyperlink to another article.

    I just keep thinking, "hey, can I finish the article I'm reading NOW before you redirect me to some other article?"

    I much prefer the method employed in books where you have an unobtrusive indicator that a source is cited or an idea needs elaboration, then you can reference those at the bottom of the page or in the appendix.

    I just prefer an unobtrusive reading environment where I can focus on the content in front of me without being tempted to click away.
