    First post here, love the site and the vast amount of quality information here.
    Now to my question, I have recently started a review blog, and I just accepted two comments at the end of my blog on Wordpress. I noticed afterwards that where the comments list the names of the people who commented, that the names are hyperlinked to their own respective sites. So, I was thinking I didn't want any leaks from my site, as I have my own amazon affiliate links on my blog, so I edited the comments to link to my amazob aff. links. Is this a bad or good practice? Unethical or totally alright? Just not sure so advice from this knowledgeable forum is much appreciated.

    Not something I'd do. Either show it with a rel="nofollow" or remove the website field from the comment section. My 2cents.
