Just a heads up to users that our Links database will be removed in the near future.

Why are we making this change? The links database has become somewhat stale with lots of dead links. Websites come and go and the manual process of updating and maintaining the database is just not time well spent.

In addition, we continue to receive numerous requests for additions to the database that are often not a good fit and sometimes are clearly just questionable link bait.

We thought we'd post this ahead of time so anyone who relies upon the links for commonly used sites can gather those up for saving elsewhere. We plan on removing Links from the sites on October 1st.

We've uploaded the changes to the websites to remove the Links database. If you recall some link in that data set you want to retrieve just send us a note. We'll keep the underlying database records for at least a month before we purge them to free up some space.
