For external pages, it is just the same, you might just be happy with 
increasing some page's pagerank. On some forums, users tend to suggest 
others going to http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html or 
the native language translation of that before asking more questions :) 
Now it would clearly be positive, if these type of pages pagerank would 
raise :)
