Well, if you're going to release LinksDB as a alternative to Links, you 
should at least attempt to program it correctly. You're not using 
database prefixes, you're not using Drupal coding style, you're not 
using db_query properly with %d and %s, you've got _POST all over the 
place and blah blah blah.

At this point, I'd say you'd do yourself some service to actually 
attempt to use the links package instead, because this code is far from 
desirable on any type of Drupal installation.

And, sorry, I don't buy the "well, it was for me only" schtick - if 
you're gonna hop on here and disparage Links, intentionally or not, you 
should at least have some powerful mojo to back you up. You don't.
