Links? We Don't Need No Stinking Links!

In the latest example of people who just don't get how the World Wide Web works (WWW-w? ^_^), Japan's Nikkei newspaper now requires that you obtain their approval for any inbound links to their articles. So why do they even bother to publish anything on the WWW?

I wonder how long before they notice the traffic to their site has plummeted. I googled for "japan nikkei newspaper" and didn't get a single result going directly to the newspaper's web site. Makes sense, otherwise Google would have to get permission for any links before it could show them to me.

I'd provide a link to Nikkei newspaper, but... ^_^
