I think you are missing the point. Links or no links, listing of a page
without content _is_ stupid and it shows that algorithms which Google rely
on are/can be weak. 

Need I even start a discussion about comment spam, which is a result of that
nasty algorithm? Try starting your day, every single day, erasing P0ker and
V!agra comments from your pages.

...and then come Google et al. with a 'bugfix', telling everybody to change
links in pages to include rel="nofollow". I say: fix your bloody methods.
Don't tell us how to write our sites.

...but I love Google... I think... no, I do.
