I just learned about hackers unobtrusively inserting links into other people's websites, blogs, web-pages, etc. Apparently no one is immune.
Could we have a link list capability like we have comment list capability, poll list capability, etc?
Then we could scan the list and easily discover what doesn't belong. Not only would we avidly use it, it would remove some of the workload from the security infrastructure, moderators, etc.
I'm not entirely sure I didn't put them there myself, Para. Just asking HP if it is possible for someone to do this because I seldom use other hubbers articles to link too if they conflict with mine. This is true specially if they are not well written. This is the reason I haven't given any links, because they go to another hubber's articles. I don't wish to blame innocent members if something else is going on.
Just wanted to give a heads-up in case something is not right. But thanks for the extra attention to this possibility.
I googled the subject. It happens all the time. Blogger, Wordpress, and others are constantly victimized by this. If not us now, it will be us later. Besides, such a list would be darn handy anyway, even if just for maintenance purposes.
