The way I look at it, the problem with this, and all other 'links' threads is that unless you bookmark the individual links (I've got most of these), you'd have to look at the thread each time, which may not seem like much until the site has one of it's off days and you're cut off from everything.

Ideally, there'd be a big ol' links thread stickied at the top, but I imagine the maintenance and readability of such a sticky would be prohibitively labor-intensive.
