[wp-hackers] Text ads in themes

BTW, just got a rush of hackers emails through, and wanted to update my 
statement. :)

I think 'hiding ads in plain view' is bad, without the mentioned caveats 
prior to download that Matt and others have mentioned.  But a link back to 
the author's site would be a different story -- I thought that's where the 
conversation was going (i.e., author's shouldn't put links in at all, 
shouldn't benefit in the slightest...), and obviously disagree with that 
extreme. ;)

| Gotta agree with both points.  Never have heard a peep about the default
| blogroll links.  At the same time, someone develops a theme with a link, 
| them!  It's one thing to be open source, it's another thing to think that
| any of us are stinking rich and can just 'do this for fun' ad infinitum...

|| Eh.  <shrugs>  WordPress's default blogroll links have the same effect
|| (times a few hundred thousand), and I don't think anybody would begrudge
|| Matt that.
|| All I'm saying is that I don't think it's worth your time worrying about
| it.
