Using this link also diverts hits away from a site that is merely aggregating stories, not actually writing them (Yahoo!).

your point? Notice that LXer is an aggregator as well.

Yes, I recognize that. I believe my point to be evident: It is preferable to read direct articles - when they are available - via the LXer aggregator, versus using this aggregator to read articles from another aggregator. I've made the same oversight when posting stuff to LXer, so it's not a condemnation - just a mention.

I would also rather see a pro-Windows site like PC World get hits from LXer instead of Yahoo getting traffic. Perhaps I'm alone here.

Don't forget to purchase the Norton Antivirus that they advertise on the side of the article.

Don't forget to purchase the Norton Antivirus...

OK, I did, I got the download link, received the file, clicked it and nothing happened. I guess it's working...
