Yes, I guess a link is less intrusive and probably a better idea, assuming that
the text is written in positive. I mean, the text should make people want to
read it (in the line of "how to write a good post that will get you an answer")
instead of putting them off (with something like "things you shouldn't do"). At
least I think I would be more likely to read the first than the second one :-)
