Usually, you will find links along with a topic paragraph or summary.

Heh heh, yeah, I guess I'm not the only one who thought it was cluttering up the forum a bit. I think this way will work better for everyone, and maybe we can actually get some discussion going before the thread is buried under newer stories.
