    It is a horrible tactic… instantly makes it look like a virus-riddled spam link, or The Sun-style sensationalism, neither of which makes me want to click it!

    Worse, I think it makes me an even badder (more bad? baddier?) person, because a tiny part of me judges friends who DO click links to such articles…
