Why would they do this?

I admit I haven't completely followed this discussion..  (If someone wants
to respond privately, great.)

I hadn't known until now whether these "hidden links" were accidental or
on purpose.  Actually, I guess I still don't know, because it seems like 
others are still debating the issue.

What I don't get is why these links don't show up unless you have 
a switch set (and my usual alias is "lynx -nopause -pseudo_inlines -nolist"..
so I'm missing these links right?)

With the CNN example given, they sound like they're actually useful links
not links to images.

I guess I don't see why they're "hidden" in the first place.
