This is my personal opinion only, but to be quite honest with you, I HATE
pseudo links on web pages. If something is supposed to be a link to
another page, I want to see another page. The excessive page flapping that
occurs with these things is hard on the eyes.

These kinds of pages are useful -- but for gosh sakes, just tell me to
scroll down the page.
