It has gotten to the point where it seems the only type of self-linking allowed by Google is adwords linking. So be it! Since I no longer make my decisions based upon what will please G, I will continue to self-link my bylines or author boxes in syndicated articles and continue to self-link on all my social networking.
I can see how all of this will just encourage people who are dependent upon G to turn to the churn and burn black hat methods.
