In some of the slower moving forums, we often have to "examplify the urls" in a code snippet or remove a link to someones URL that they are looking for help on.

I think this would hinder the amount of help a person can actually get from the experts in the forum, especially if they see the thread after it was snipped or examplefied.

So I think there should be some distinction between a URL drop and someone who needs help on a problem.

I do not think this would be ideal in all situations, example: "My site XYZ no longer ranks", but when it is technical issues I think it could be very helpful.

This could be achieved by moving the Review My Site forum to the free area and marking it noindex/nofollow/noarchive to and from the rest of the site.

That would help the needy and deter the ones who just need link juice.

+1 to what anallawalla said!

This would definitely shorten the time to solution in the CSS forum. Responses to requests for 'more info' (by those helping the OP) sometimes span days. This would be more 'friendly' to newbies.
