    I do that all the time. I'd hope the rest of the planet could too, but with over 80% of internet users on the one web-browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer no less, they just can't or they get fucked up.

    I really don't worry about links, myself.

    I've got my pc locked down pretty tight, so there's not much I'm worried about.
