Can we strip posts of unhelpful links?

Metafilter: Unhelpful link text. Extra links added for padding that have little to do with the main topic of the entry. Are extremely loaded rhetorical questions the only thing that can save us now?

Link padding sucks

This comment lends credence to my prior concern. I love well researched posts containing multiple links. However, in my view every link in a post should link to notable sites; not one link with needless, lazy padding. I'm concerned if members, new and old alike, think "padding out" a post with a 3-minute googling exercise is a good thing.

What can we do to encourage people to pad out their NewsFilter posts?

What can we do to encourage people to pad out their NewsFilter posts? Yes it is an interesting piece of news, and yes I am sure some interesting comments may follow but surely some extra links to relevant elements of the story is not too difficult? C'mon folks, off your fat asses.
