Yeah I would add switches to disable both as not all users may want it.
Should the number of links class start off disabled on install/upgrade?

Sounds pretty straightforward but should be configurable (including being
able to switch it off entirely), IMO.

For example, I would probably want to disable it on geeklog.net. Somebody
posted a lot of links to his site in a forum thread[1] today. He wasn't
spamming, though, just trying to figure out a problem (and was already
punished by SLV).

I wasn't sure what to make of that service initially, but it seems to be
pretty much accepted (and supported in other web apps) these days. So thumbs
up from me.

bye, Dirk
