The links still show up for me. But I don't click links much. I hover over them first and usually I'm not remotely interested in the destination. As far as I'm concerned, I figure if CR is getting paid, no big deal. Heck, I barely even noticed them until the comment brought them up. The CR site works pretty well and it's not free to host. In the end, we all win since this site benefits us all. If one doesn't like the link, ignore it and don't click on it. I think most of us know it's par for the course these days anyway and don't assume the poster went to all the trouble to link to a non related site.
