Why the zero in the links? Don't want to inadvertently help KR rise to the top of the searches?
Got it in one :-) ... outbound links from a large site with Canon content to KR are worth a lot of money because of the way google works - if I set them (even from the forum), I want a free 5d3 ... no, wait, I'd be even ok with a 6d!
As a side comment - broken links cause Google to lower the rank of the web site that carries them (in this case, CanonRumors.com), as broken links indicate the site is not maintained and lets info (such as said links) go out of date. It might be best to not mark the URL as a link, or allow marking links as nofollow.
