    That works for members, but I bet guests still see them, which may be a turn off.

    That sums it up for me. It's one of those functions that sounds like a good idea until you encounter it on a regular basis.

    Would probably work better as something seen on hover.

    I don't get all the hate. I wouldn't say I'm a huuuge fan, jury is still out either way, but it is kind of handy being able to read the blurb about a link wothout having to click on it, especially when on mobile, keeps me on the site sometimes instead of clicking out, yet I still know the jist of what the link is

    I agree. I'd consider using it on some of my sites if that was an option.

    I don't get the love.

    It's fine on facebook, but on a forum it just breaks up the discussion, physically. No thanks. Especially bad on mobile.

    There was:
    But not since then. Users can turn it off anyway, so kinda makes it a moot point anyway.
