Yeah, that's it, Ron. I'm not seeing any threaded replies. Anyone else experiencing that?

Something is broken in the comments display here. The header (and my email notifications) tell me there are 5 comments, but I can only see two (mine and Josh Wagner's). I have to say that I've been pretty unhappy with Intense Debate; I'm sticking with Disqus on m blog. What am I missing?

Does anyone know of any negatives about killing all iFrames?

OK, that makes sense, John. I have resumed hating Diggbar ;-) and will keep your code active on my site. Thanks for responding.

John, I'm wondering if "video games" is at least partly right. The Wired article you link to in your post (as partial evidence for your claims) says, "Even though the DiggBar keeps a user at Digg, the content provider's site is displayed in an inline frame, meaning it still receives a page view and the proper ad revenue for each click." If that's true, then the Diggbar isn't stealing as much as you post claims. I'd like to get that confirmed. If that's true, then the only valid objection would be your aesthetic one. Personally, I'd sacrifice a 1/4" of headspace if I were getting significant traffic from Diggers.

I'm not necessarily jumping on video games' bandwagon here, just wondering if you can provide more evidence backing your claim that the Diggbar steals our traffic and PageRank.

I added your code, and posted the following on the home page of my blog: "This site blocks all link toolbars. Support bloggers by linking directly to their sites. Read why link bars like the DiggBar rip off bloggers."

The last sentence is a link to this post.

Thanks SO much, John, for making us bloggers aware of this. And thanks even more for the code to block it. Like you, I try to make it as easy as possible on my blog for readers to share what they like from my site on Digg, Stumble, Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets. We don't need no stinkin' toolbar that robs us of the linkage points we work hard to earn!

Another way Twitter and blogging work together well: I see my blog as the "read more" to some of my Tweets. The tweet gives the nugget thought; if the follower wants to hear more of my thoughts on the matter, she can follow the link to a (fuller) blog post about it.
