5. You have savy recepients like me ;-), who doesn't open ANY e-mail that has but only a link without comment! 
If you don't feel excited enough about it to tell me what it's all about, it's probably not worth my time to open it!

4. As you've all probably observed, there's a major security and spam
problem at several freemail providers -- notably Yahoo.  If you look
at the messages these account hijackers are sending out, you'll notice
that many of them feature: bare links.  Thus if you send out messages
like that, you're making your messages look like spam.  That's not a
good move, doubly so given some of the countermeasures being contemplated
or already in place.
