In general it would make very little difference to SEs. But if the links you refer to were promo links to your own site, then you'd kill the article utterly for human readers; it would just look spammy.
You'd probably do much better publishing your own work on your own site, rather than helping to promote an article farm.
I examine the links at the article sites, looking for no-follows or java redirects. Finding sites are difficult, but out there none the less.
I'll be taking in your suggestion anyways tho.... except from a different angle. Try to get the benefit of both worlds.
