    Have To Be Signed In To See Links, it would bring more activity to AF and would cut down on the lurking. Some people are just to lazy or have no motive to join, but with this feature then they would have to join. Maybe they will even become active in the community because of this requirement.

    I dunno, I hate that every time I see it somewhere. I also tend to do a quick back/scan (google results) to see if there is elsewhere I can go for quicker anonymous solutions..

    I'd take a look at intros and see how many folks mention that they have lurked here for a long time and decided to join because of the helpfulness of the members. I think hiding links would only be a turn off for potential new members.

    Understandable, it has it good and its bad to it; not 100% the best suggestion but still something to think even though it wont get implemented.
