15. Let me try to clarify...
For example, let's say a lawfirm or contracting firm is involved, and they have a website. And let's say that someone posts a link to their website in this thread. And let's say that someone in this thread clicks on the link to that website.

Well, the owner of the destination website (lawfirm, contracting firm, whatever) can now see that a link from DU sent someone (or more importantly, a *lot* of someones) to their site, and they might backtrack via that link to this thread, and discover that someone here has been looking into, say, how they have been modifying Wiki entries.

This might give a heads-up to someone, such that they stop doing whatever they think is of interest to us. That's all.
