    link-free

    What do you imagine if you come across
    something like "This website is link-free"?
    Thank you.

    Re: link-free

    Thank you very much, Ben.
    In Japanese webpages, we see such a thing like 'This
    webpage is link-free.' It means "You can freely put a
    link to this page."
    That is really misleading, isn't it?
    It seems -free after some word always means
    'free of -' or 'without -'. e.g. acid-free, alcohol-free,
    carefree, etc. Is that right?

    Re: link-free

    It think the main meaning was that there ARE NO LINNKS on that page, not refering to - CAN you post a link there...

    Re: link-free

    I agree with Ben; I would not interpret it as meaning that you could get a free link there.
