That's better than looking at the day's statistics and having an intestinal cramp. :-)
Exactly, which is why I just stopped looking at my web stats.
Here's the thing about that link:
You and I and pretty much everybody else knows that is an "OK' link. We know you didn't pay for it or have anything to do with that link appearing on numerous pages on their site.
On the other hand, I have heard that - should one get Penguinized and file a disavow file - it can still take a LONG time for it to work its way through the system and make a difference to your rankings...
So I don't know what to say... But really, in today's world if that site is creating links dynamically / automatically based on the content of the article, they should probably do EVERYBODY a favor and nofollow them.
Anyway, this is just one person's opinion.
