So is there such a thing as unethical linkbait? If so, what is it? Where does one draw the line? Or the link even (sorry!)

Christ, Michael. I thought that comment was some creepy stalker until you added an avatar. Now I know it’s just from some idiotic Australian :P

While I’ve never experienced this linkbait trickery, I can only imagine a history blog linking to an article about Hitler and the Third Reich only to later have the author redirect the history blog’s readers to a Neo-Nazi recruiting site. o_O

I’m not a crazy stalker. Nicest comment I’ve got in years!
